From: Mark Fowler Date: 23:58 on 22 Mar 2004 Subject: SQL I've written this email several times, trying to find a way of expressing exactly what is wrong with SQL. I find I am not up to the task. It sucks in so many ways I could write an entire article on it. So, in summary: SQL SUCKS SO BADLY THAT FOR THE LAST FOUR YEARS NASA HAVE BEEN MISTAKENLY INVESTIGATING IT AS A BLACK HOLE I thank you. Mark.

I've just come back to SQL after having successfully stayed clean and sober for what must be 20 years (I must be figuring wrong, I'm not allowed to be old enough to say things like that), and I haven't yet recalled what terrors lurked in the depths of a SELECT. I'm sure I'll start waking up in strange places soon enough.
