Storytelling: A Lost Art?

A letter to the editor in today's Wall Street Journal bemoans the writer's perception that "we so rarely...teach by telling a great story" anymore. She cites examples of engaging storytelling from her recent experiences at a series of events centered around a college graduation. She also references a recent article in the Journal, Michael Judge's May 25th piece, "On Good Fences and Sometimes Good Neighbors" as an excellent example of teaching through story.

Do you agree that our society has largely lost the art of storytelling? Are we too busy to share our personal stories with anyone? Or to listen to anyone else's story? Tell us what you think, or better yet, point us to some examples of stories you've heard or read recently that enriched your life in some way: by moving you, teaching you, inspiring you or just plain entertaining you.
