Sure, let's give Ada's opponents more ammunition for their claims that
nobody "speaks" the language by recruiting a group of people that are
often perceived as not quite in tune with the native tongue to promote it.

The heart of the matter is that we as Ada vendors must do all we can to
make Ada affordable and attractive to those that are trying to improve
their lives by learning new skills.

Speaking of which, whatever happened to the pilot program to provide
High School students with Ada preloaded on surplus gov't PCs?
