    On too early for my weekend tastes, but Chris Hayes' show is supposed to be pretty good -- to talk about the Susan G. Komen debacle he had an all-female panel. And I'm really looking forward to Melissa Harris-Perry's show starting in a couple of weeks -- at least that'll be on at a more respectable time for us West Coast types.

      given we would think nothing of a all-male panel.

      Although I did have slightly mixed emotions. Because it was a "women's issue"  I wondered, "are we unable to find a MAN to speak to the issue?"

      Clearly we're not, but Chris kind of missed an opportunity to spotlight a man who can be adamantly pro-choice.

      But it was a great panel, especially Melissa Harris-Perry, who exclaimed,

      "We thought that was just their marketing hook, but now we saw, they really DO think breast cancer is just a white middle-class issue!"
