It’s baaaaack…

“[L]ike Madonna and newspapers, cursive has displayed a gritty staying power, refusing to have its loop de loops and curlicues swept to the dustbin of handwriting history.” So declares Joe Heim in Tuesday’s Washington Post.

Interestingly, I noticed just a couple of years ago that I’d pretty much forgotten how to write in cursive. Dismayed, I foreswore the child-like printing I’d been using for decades. Sure, my notes were practically illegible, but hey—I was relearning a lost skill.

Is there a point? I’m not sure. I mean, I like that I’m getting better at it, but do state legislatures need to get involved? Color me dubious.
