It just occurred to me... The cost of people not being able to properly read/write in cursive will be high as illiterate pharmacists try to decipher doctors' scribblings and end up poisoning people!

Not really, print is harder to completely butcher. So if doctors drop cursive it should actually help the situation.

When I was younger I had a fairly nice signature, now arthritis has turned it into a scrawl. ...I haven't written in cursive in so long I've actually forgotten some of the letters.

On the good side, a pharmacist could give you morphine...

I'd prefer to think that doctors will always scribble and that I could luck into some morphine. smiley
