Listen to Uche Ogbuji: "Type errors are not even close to the majority of those I make while programming in Python, and I'm quite certain that the code I've written in Python is much less buggy than code I've written in strongly-typed languages. Expressiveness, IMO, is a far better aid to correctness than artificial restrictions (see Java for the example of school-marm programming gone amok)."
