Interestingly, the main thing that I got out of this article in the Washington Post (which I found via The Corner) was not anything having to do with cursive handwriting or the death of penmanship, but rather a desire to learn shorthand. How cool would that be? It would be like knowing a foreign language since the knowledge of it is so rare now. At least, I don’t think I know a single person who knows shorthand whereas I know people who speak French, German, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese and probably several other tongues if I sat and thought about it for a bit.
