There'a saying that goes something like, “Meh, that's nothing to write home about.”

Well, what is worth “writing” home about any more? No one writes a letter about anything any more. In fact, ironically, the more important something is the less likely you are to write a letter about it, and the more likely you are to phone, email, blog, tweet, or facebook it.

Will the next generation even understand the origins of “writing home”?
