CHICAGO — For generations, there was a skill that was taught in school at a young age that may not be used throughout all of life, but would be handy here and there.

But now it’s becoming a lost art – and some in “Gen Z” haven’t even had the chance to learn how to do it.

We talked about this lost art of writing on the “9@9” on Monday morning as the hosts discussed the disappearance of cursive writing for many younger people. In fact, it’s not even among the core standards for many schools, and it’s been that way for over a decade.

Along with that, we also talked about a cheese cabin, how coffee affects your love life, a very unique (and maybe dangerous) hair cut, an insane bike trick, and more.

You can watch this edition of the ‘9@9″ on the October 16 morning news in the video above.
