Handwriting C+

It was the end of eighth grade and Mrs. Erlinger gave me the only C I'd ever known... a C+ in Handwriting. I still consider my handwriting -- which wavers between cursive and printing -- as a "screw you" directed at her... though it's only recently that I've realized I probably deserved it. Sorry, Mrs. Erlinger. Most people seem to accept their horrible handwriting as a result of a computer-driven age, but some schools are seeking to remedy this... like this independent school in England that is bringing back the fountain pen as a last-ditch effort to save its students' handwriting.
