    Thank you, Jon. That's somewhat similar to what I read. We have to take into account the fact that the press often exaggerates but I suppose if cursive becomes truly redundant it will disappear for practical purposes though there will always be eccentrics like us, even in later generations, who will keep cursive alive.
