Do you write letters or e-mails?

Dear Fellow Journalers,

Let me ask you a question. Do people still write letters? While you’re scratching your head, allow me to remind you that letters involve paper and pens, envelopes and stamps and e-mail is just a computer. I know I’m being ridiculous but I saw a poll the other day that asked this question. The consensus was that people “of a certain age” easily wrote letters and  the younger generation liked email or Twitter. Both sides of this question have valid points. Here are some of the polled answers:

“Letters are a thing of the past”

“E-mails are faster and easier”

“You can send emails to friends and family around the world at the same time”

“Less paper in my mailbox”

“For a personal touch, nothing beats getting something in the postal mail”

“If a thank you is called for, a hand-written note shows good manners, professionalism, and thoughtless.”

“I have a lot of beautiful stationery and want to use it”

“If you don’t need a response right away, I write a letter”

So, my question remains, do you write letters?
