Segment A: CAN WE TALK?
When's the last time you had a thoughtful conversation with a friend or colleague?  Is the on-line age making  you uncomfortable with face to face communication?  On today's HearSay Cathy visits with Margaret Shepherd, author of The Art of Civilized Conversation: A Guide to Expressing Yourself with Style and Grace about how to turn a plain conversation into an engaging encounter.
