Wow. I got a rather lengthy comment today from a reader who took offense at a post I wrote last September about our nation’s move towards eliminating cursive writing lessons.
Apparently the lack of cursive lessons will mean that we can’t communicate in other countries, will be unable to write receipts if the power goes out, shows our laziness and bad manners, and is why we’ll never have world peace!
Ya know, in other countries they don’t use the same cursive that we do, you can print receipts and… well, I’m not even sure how to answer that world peace one.
Apparently, if my children don’t learn cursive they also will not be able to use screwdrivers. Huh. You learn something new every day!
Check out the original post and the responses here (the last one is the recent one).
Incidentally, both of my girls have happily taught themselves cursive by now, so the world is at least a little safer. 😉
What do you think?
