The Lost Art of Letter Writing

I brought this up in meeting I attended the other day, that I still, occasionally, set pen to paper and write a letter to a friend.  In this article, author Susan Evans McCloud explains why email and IM can never replace the personal, intimate act of writing a letter.  (Just one more reason to keep teaching cursive in public schools.) 
Maybe not really a library issue, but I'm wondering, could we do a program on letter writing? Something to think about.
