GOOD, IT WAS THE HARDEST PART OF THE BAR EXAM (via The Mother Judd):
The Case for Cursive (KATIE ZEZIMA, 4/27/11, NY Times)
For centuries, cursive handwriting has been an art. To a growing number of young people, it is a mystery.
The sinuous letters of the cursive alphabet, swirled on countless love letters, credit card slips and banners above elementary school chalk boards are going the way of the quill and inkwell. With computer keyboards and smartphones increasingly occupying young fingers, the gradual death of the fancier ABC’s is revealing some unforeseen challenges.
Gradual death is too good for it.
