COBOL references in "The Jargon File"

Introduction & acknowledgements

A colleague of mine is a COBOL programmer, and fervently believes COBOL is superior to most any other programming language. I thought I'd rummage around "The Jargon File" to see what I could find. Sadly all entries referring to COBOL are rather negative.
But what do I know? I'm just a code monkey grinding away in my language of choice: PHP.
