There have been COUNTLESS changes in our society since the advent of the personal computer and the cell phone. I often wonder how many of today's younger generation will be able to sit down with a pen or pencil and write a letter or a manuscript or a book using old fashioned "cursive" writing. Most of the young folks today are "texting" when they don't have their phones glued to their ears. To my fellow members of wrinkle city who know how to write the old fashioned way, the new fad is utilizing a "shorthand" process which adds a whole new and very cryptic style to the "King's English." What was "laugh out loud" is now LOL. "By the way" is now BTW and on and on. My high school and grammar school teachers would "like, you know", turn over in their graves.
