Lost Pilot Skills

This isn’t really much of an “article” from yahoo, but it does bring an interesting point about modern pilots’ skill degradation as a result of over reliance on automation.  See the link here: http://news.yahoo.com/ap-impact-automation-air-dulls-pilot-skill-070507795.html

I have often wondered about this modern phenomenon where airplanes are only flown by the computers, with pilots managing the process. 

What do you think?  How do we fix it?  Are we willing to bear the cost of fixing it?
