On this issue of cursive writing and its apparent demise in the texting world.
I was chatting with a bookkeeper who was telling me he still uses a fountain pen.
Of course he also went to parochial school where the nuns enforced cursive writing in the second grade and a requirement to buy a fountain pen in the fourth grade.
He also has an inkwell to fill his cartridges....Those nuns had a serious impact on this gent.
Sister Rose was her name. You'd don't get that kind of personal attention in public schools.
