The quill is just the tool.  You have to know the forms of writing first before you can really use one.  That's calligraphy.  There are many types of calligraphy, not all of them are flowery.  Just look at the constitution or some older German writing.  It can be really neat if you practice and know how to do it.  Then you use ink and a cut quill to write like that....like our founding father's did.  That's one of the things I want to learn to do when I retire.

"Depends on what you mean by "inferior." Regardless, the claim used to market him that he was a centrist is patently false. One scale put him to the left of Kagan, and almost to the left of Ginsburg. Also, boring picks are underrated."
