I so agree with that.
 
When I worked, I tried to impart the huge value of Comment First Development. It is always easier to describe what you want to do then it is to write the code. In the trivial cases it can be annoying, especially on accessor methods [properties to you C# boys], but even when you get to something as simple as your tax calc having the comments in place makes a great difference.
 
The second, and not to be ignored, advantage of CFD is that it is very easy to leave off the comment once you've finished the code.
