The Case for Cursive

Big thanks to Dave Lull for directing me to stories on the state of handwriting in today's world, like this one in the NY Times. I find it fascinating that this skill is maybe possibly becoming obsolete. I cannot understand the logic behind the choice not to teach handwriting, that in order to learn something new (keyboarding, computer skills) you must also stomp out all related and older but still-viable skills. It just seems so short-sighted.
