Mr. Mathis (hope your still on Team-Ada):

Just read your excellent article, "Commonly Asked Questions About Ada:
The Standardized Development Language" in the STSC Crosstalk.

With minor changes, this would make an excellent "educational" article
for the non-Ada community.  Such changes might include:

1. A more diplomatic title (don't want to anger the misinformed before
the read the article).

2. You cited URLs beginning with http://lglwww.epfl.ch/Ada and
http://www.adahome.com but actually, the latter is the new name for the
former.

As an  aside on prototyping:  It may take slightly longer to prototype
in Ada than in C, but the improved quality may make possible greater
re-use in the production model, thereby more than compensating for the
difference.  How nice it would be to NOT have to say,

"Well, so what if it crashes--it's only a prototype."
