At the Perl Conference Town Meeting, someone got up and said; "Perl
has a serious image problem, what can we do to address this?".  At the
time, I thought wow it must suck to work at a place where the bosses
buy into all the Perl FUD strewn about.   Foolish me........

When I got back to work on Monday, I sent a summary of the conference
to my department and the following reply came back from the VP of

> Given security issues, is it a good idea to be using PERL for our
> tools?

Does anyone have any good advice on how to respond to this?  Keep in
mind that this guy is my boss :-).
