  I have a teacher that I work  with who can't remember a title of a short story 
that she remembers  reading in high school. We know that it is not "A Logic Named  
Joe."  Here is the description that she e-mail me. 
 "I  read and was wondering if you would know the title when I describe  it.  It 
would be considered a science fiction short story dealing  with people in the 
future (which is during the twenty-first century)  where computers do almost 
everything for each person.  They  sit infront of a computer and they make things 
happen based on a  person's thoughts.  Then at the end the computers start to take  
over, because the people have become so weak and never do anything, but  sit - they 
are not needed any more.  Do you have any idea what  story that would be?  If you 
don't know it that is ok - I thought  it would be like finding a needle in a 
haystack." Joanne
  Thanks for any ideas.
