Cursive writing: Lost art or useless skill?

When asked for their John Hancock, future generations might print it in block letters or scrawl some scribbles across the page. But odds are, they won't sign their name in cursive.

They might not even be able to read it.

Cursive, with its graceful loops and perfectly joined letters, seems soon to join the typewriter, VCR player and flip-phone as relics of a past age. Keyboarding skills, not cursive, were included in the Common Core, a set of national academic standards adopted last year by more than 40 states, including Florida. ...

For a couple of brief years in the early 2000s, when the first pocket PCs, equipped with a stylus and OCR software first appeared on the market; I actually thought cursive writing would make a comeback but, alas, the smartphone eventually pushed these out of the marketplace. Oh well.

Well, as I said before in a similar article a couple of months ago, (SA's leader must have a wife who likes Caligraphy. which is by the way fine with me. ) If one doesn't have a typewriter like device (and those are still sold in some stores), and you want to write something quickly, and in my case in an unreadable manner than cursive is the way to go. It should be remembered through history and across languages cursive is not common. Biblical Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic, were all block letters, in at least the more important documents, after looking over the interesting article on Cursive -- Wikipedia I may have to revise my thinking on the history of it. It's well worth reading.

Cursive writing skills should never, ever be required for left-handed people! Teach them to type in Kindergarten!
