We can do wrong things almost on anything. It's just the matter of (1) how we 
use it [properly] and (2) how it prevents misuse of itself. In this discussion, 
the point (1) refers to the programmers, and point (2) refers to the language.

So, when point (1) refers to a world-wide known as good programmer, OS maker, 
etc. (no matter what language he actually uses) and point (2) refers to Pascal, 
that'd be a good material for promoting Pascal. Is it?

And that's the power of this promoting material. A big pascal hater prefers 
pascal to do things right! :D
