   Sometimes other concerns may dictate the need for a rapid-development 
language like Java, but those concerns are usually nontechnical in 
nature.  In an ideal situation, however, I agree with your statement.  
People who can't manage their own memory or handle pointers simply 
shouldn't be trying to program computers.
