And my heart filled with joy

Yesterday I went to get a soda and passed by a group of young women, one of color, sitting around chatting. Having never seen them before I figured they were from a nearby (non-science) department, but then I started hearing snippets of their conversation -

"-- and I can't believe he's teaching it in Java."                            
"I know, what a ridiculous language to use for this material."

That's my kind of talk!

(Well, actually, I love Java, but you know what I mean).
