Reasons to Write: The Lost Virtue of Cursive

I have never thought of cursive as being a virtue but Mark Oppenheimer of The New Yorker reminds us that Misters Palmer, Spencer & Co. did. While no one today is likely to believe that training in handwriting is an aid to reforming bad children (especially those devious left-handers!) many of us none-the-less will lament with Mr. Oppenheimer that keyboarding has swallowed our handwriting whole. My proposed cure? Write more letters, of course!

    1. Yes, do write more letters! It's good for you :)

  2. Is the art of letter writing in business lost? Can a letter that is well written and has no spelling or grammatical mistakes help you gain business, or at least not lose it? See more handwritten letter service
