Yes, I have always found it VERY STRANGE that people who are gung ho about
"Object Oriented" don't have the least bit of a problem using a language
(C++, Java) that offers virtually no language support for data
modeling.  But then, I DO understand that, to a large part, that is because
their C.S. education was so weak on the importance of data modeling.  :)
