I don't know about you, but when it comes to cursive writing, I pretty much suck at it. That might be because I stopped writing in cursive the exact moment we were no longer required to do it in school. I've never really looked back, either.
Looking at the results of a recently-published study on the most and least educated cities in the United States reminded me of a couple of quotes. One, from John Belushi in Animal House: "7 years of college down the drain," and the other from my dad: "Did 9 years of high school teach you nothing?"
