    • I like to think of JCP as a herd of elephant real estate speculators staking out claims in the ever-expanding frontier of The Core Libraries. No other image really captures the elegance, precision, simplicity, and unashamed piles of excreta in their wake.

      For fun, go to the JavaOne exhibit hall, yell out "I have a new API for controlling coconut-throwing monkeys", step back, and enjoy the stampede. If the 18-month standardization process doesn't produce a library that includes some sort of rocketry, I'll be disappointed.
