That was a good excuse to write my first python program from scratch. I learned a lot.
Here's what I came up with.
# Written on 10/16/2008 by Gordon Fisher
# Reads in keystrokes from the keyboard into a string.
# parses out how many times each letter appears in the string.
# Prints out the results.
keystrokes = 
letters = [0 for x in range (26)]
keystrokes = raw_input()
for x in range (len(keystrokes)):
askey = ord(keystrokes[x])
if askey > 64 and askey < 91: # lower case letters
letters[askey-65] = letters[askey-65]+1
elif askey > 96 and askey < 123: # upper case letters
letters[askey-97] = letters[askey-97]+1
for x in range (26):
print 'There are '+ str(letters[x])+' ' + chr(x + 65)+'\''+ 's'
