I managed to catch Melissa Harris-Perry on her eponymous MSNBC show yesterday, while waiting for two friends to stop by for a day of downtown Tampa sightseeing.

Oh hi! My name's Brittney; welcome to my soapbox. I'm an Angelina Jolie scholar, cooking-illiterate vegan, and fledgling, flailing poet who quit her corporate job to take the freelance plunge.
