You download this free software and so does your colleague or computer tutor – whoever. Then start a session where you both see the same screen and can work on it together. Use skype.com – also free – to talk as you do. Who needs airplanes or actual human contact anymore? This is great if you want to help your grandmother fix something on her computer . . . or if you and your co-chair want to go over the seating chart . . . or if you have to finalize the brochure but have cooties and can’t go in to work.

Ralph Sierra: “A good article from the respected business columnist Steven Pearlstein.”
☞ The gist:
. . . The recent attacks by Republican leaders and their ideological fellow-travelers on the effort to reform the health-care system have been so misleading, so disingenuous, that they could only spring from a cynical effort to gain partisan political advantage. By poisoning the political well, they’ve given up any pretense of being the loyal opposition. They’ve become political terrorists, willing to say or do anything to prevent the country from reaching a consensus on one of its most serious domestic problems.
. . . Health reform is a test of whether this country can function once again as a civil society — whether we can trust ourselves to embrace the big, important changes that require everyone to give up something in order to make everyone better off. Republican leaders are eager to see us fail that test.
