The car deaths I mentioned are terrible stuff. Doesn't seem one seatbelt is ever enough. You must vote for my act so that fewer will cry. Unless of course you just want people to die!

That's obviously true because Python's frontend is virtually non-existant. html and Google & Apple's native languages are the ones that will hold the frontend spotlight for the foreseeable future.
Re: Unwise decision?
"It's pretty much the same situation if you could press a button to let someone live. If you decline to press it, knowing full well the outcome of your inaction, it's just as bad as if you pressed the button to kill them instead."
That may be true on a moral level, but on a legal level in the US you have no obligation to help anyone. You are well within your rights to do nothing.
Now, actively making the situation worse as she did, is a completely different matter.
Re: In my experience...
"...which is utterly irrelevant if you're surrounded by crap developers."
Crap developers and great developers aren't the ones we should cater to. Statistically speaking, most of us are average. So to me, the test of a programming language is whether average devs can create safe, working code, and whether their eventual replacements (who are also average) can maintain and extend that codebase.
For my money, PHP* passes this test, provided that the devs religiously use unit testing, continuous integration, etc.
* and this applies to every language, really.
