What’s up?

If I had unlimited sums of money, I would hire someone just to check my e-mail. Seriously. I am struggling to stay on top of my work e-mail. My personal blogging account? Yikes!

What would you do to save time, MotherTalkers?

Then again, my time crunch doesn’t hold a candle to this writer’s at AlterNet. Linda Tirado wrote the most mind-blowing and brave account of being poor in a provocatively titled piece, “Why Poor People’s Bad Decisions Make Perfect Sense.”

It’s gone rival and Tirado has received offers to fix her teeth, money and an agent to write her story. She has taken it in with grace — I look forward to reading more by her.

What else is in the news? What’s up with you?
