    Almost every young person I see is a chicken pecker. They can't touch type. No home row. They have to look at the keyboard to type.

    Do schools not teach typing anymore? Or basic computer skills for that matter? The current generation seems sorely lacking in their computer skills which is ironic considering the extent to which they use technology.

    I somehow got past the typing requirement. Maybe it is like cursive; it's only taught for a year and then never used again. Look at the terrible grammar and spelling most people use. Just because they took English for 13 years doesn't mean they actually apply it.
