I said OO is useless as general paradigm, 
I meant that and I don't think it is overstated.

I also said objects have a limited use, where
you don't need covariant methods. 

In such cases, you get dynamic (late) binding
which is indeed very useful.

class type supercow = object
  inherit cow
  method fly : unit -> unit
