Why waste your time parading to an empty street? Why shouldn't protestors play the PR game just as much corporations? It's all about getting your message out. Just ask the Koch brothers and their hired goons.

I can say that I use Ruby because of the way it implements regular expressions. They are really easy to use, no need to import a library or compile your regex. Just put some stuff between a couple of slashes and you're off and running.

Since most of what I end up using a scripting language for is parsing text I use Ruby instead of Python.
