Latest 'Crossing Borders' is about Lisp

At IBM's Java page, Bruce Tate writes articles about other languages and the features that they have that other languages don't. His latest is on Lisp. The usual intro stuff, but he could have spent a little more time on macros; his example is
(defmacro times_two (x) (* 2 x))
With not much more he could have shown an actual language extension. Hey Bruce, would a 'while' have killed you?
