It didn't sound rhetorical, especially as I don't know you and can
only read what you write rather than the unexpressed personal
thought/motivation behind it.
Sorry for reacting as I did if, in fact, you meant it rhetorically.
BTW, can you give a few references to Holt's research and to yours re
the effectiveness of different approaches to teaching CS1?
