Comment by ttmrichter
about Clojure Jun 2011

I have a love/hate relationship with the Lisp family. I liked Dylan (the Lisp that doesn't have Lisp's syntax) and pretty much every other Lisp I merely admired intently. I couldn't stand programming them.

Clojure is the first (and thus far only) Lisp-alike I've encountered that I both admire AND could see myself programming in without breaking out into hives.
