Exercise 3.4 people function
I have spent a fair amount of time on trying to get this function to work and now it seems as if it does. It returns the correct answer but I am not convinced that it is the best way to implement it.
for name, xxx in combined_dict.iteritems():

Like many of the exercises, insufficient thought was given when it was designed. I used similar technique and thought, too, that it was just plain silly to do it that way.
We need to remember that these exercises are not always going to be the optimal way to do something but rather are designed to test what w know about something. In this case the test its about using dictionaries.

I'm in the MOOC "Gentle Python" course. Often I'm torn on how to do these lessons. I assume we should try to become deeply familiar with Python basics as much as possible.
Thus, I generally try to complete these MIT assignments using what we've learned in Gentle Python rather than jumping ahead to investigate new Python techniques. For example, I notice that frankdpnw used "iteritems()" to write code, which is ahead of me. I was able to finish the assignment without using that function but at the same time I read about it in Python documents and practiced using it just to have an understanding.
