as i glanced at this month's NCTE (national council for the teachers of english) newsletter, i found this interesting article about the decline of handwriting. there are people out there who have become so dependent on typing, they are now unable to read their own handwriting. the article points to two men in particular. one has been banned from writing on the company white-board his penmanship is so bad. the other wrote a post-it note to himself, looked at it five minutes later and said, "i wonder what i was trying to tell myself."
