Q. What's today's top language? A. Python... no, wait, Java... no, C

Same here, Python is really handy for many tasks that otherwise would mean something like MATLAB or worse.

"If you can do C well then even Assembly comes fairly naturally" may be true, but even truer is that C is really a universal assembler - there are very VERY few cases when assembly is justified, and even in those cases the fact that it can be in-lined in many C compiler's extensions is good.
