Publisher's Note
Senator Barack Obama totes a BlackBerry and is occasionally observed listening to his iPod. By contrast, Senator John McCain makes light of his own lack of tech savvy. But does computer literacy really benefit a president? Columnist Lee Gomes suggests a commander-in-chief should spend about 20 minutes a day online, but not more than that. Gomes writes, "With the world at his beck and call, a president is one of the few people lucky enough to be able to learn more off-line than he would chained to a keyboard."

What's your opinion? People certainly sounded off to my comments last Thursday about voice mails. Here are a few comments. Many others wrote directly to me, but did not want their comments published, which we always respect.
