Historian David McCullough commented on letters in the “10 Questions” section of the June 20, 2011 Time magazine:
“Q: We don’t write letters on paper anymore. How will this affect the study of history?
McCullough’s Answer: The loss of people writing — writing a composition, a letter or a report — is not just the loss for the record. It’s the loss of the process of working your thoughts out on paper, of having an idea that you would never have had if you weren’t [writing]. And that’s a handicap. People [I research] were writing letters every day. That was calisthenics for the brain.”
Writing is good for the brain!! Real writing, not texting….
