programming languages as a core topic

Dear Colleagues -- 

ACM's and IEEE's joint task on curriculum development has released its
"ironman draft" proposal for a new core curriculum in computer science. The
draft allocates six hours to the area of programming languages, relegating
it to third-class status. I have written a letter of protest and ask for
your support. Please visit my Web site where I have posted the letter and
where you can find some additional information on the topic:
