Daily Nudge: pen or pencil? — and news

Does anyone ever actually write with the hand anymore, scratching out words on a sheet of paper? If and when you do, what writing instrument do you prefer to use? Pen or pencil? Ballpoint or roller ball or fountain pen? Mechanical pencil or the old fashioned No. 2?

As a lefty with an odd angle of holding a pen, I’d worn a large bump on my third finger from writing so much.  Today, that bump is almost gone, so little do I write mechanically. But when I do, I still prefer a nice fountain pen. The problem is I use them so seldom, they dry out. Which gives me more reason to do everything on a keyboard.

What have the churches and saints been doing in my banishment from the virtual realm?
