Kingsley,    (01)

I'm happy that we can end this discussion on a note of agreement.    (02)

I would agree that the currently mainstream implementations
are long overdue for an overhaul, and I never liked SQL as a
notation for logic.    (04)

Ted Codd didn't invent the SQL notation, and when he saw
Prolog, him immediate reaction was "I wish I had invented that."    (05)

I also believe in the value of hybrid systems, and one of my
recent papers has the title "Two paradigms are better than
one, and multiple paradigms are even better":    (06)
