The flow of cursive makes it faster, especially after you've begun taking
shortcuts in the interest of greater speed.

The whole point of printing, by hand, is to ensure clarity, future
decipherability. Or, it was.
That function is largely taken over by keyboards, real and virtual.

The latest BlackBerry on-screen keyboard looks like it'd finally be a
replacement for a pen/pencil and notepad, for taking notes in an interview.
And the result would be as legible as anybody could care to see.
