Why Python?

I like Django, but I also don’t like it.  Why?  Python’s syntax.

I just don’t know why anyone would want to work this way.  There seems nothing so bad about the pointless braces and semi-colons that we should bother to exclude them.

I’d rather have Java-like syntax.  Why?  It works, and it matches JavaScript.  This continuous switching back and forth is confusing. 🙁
