MSNBC Morning Joe's Mika Brzezinski coming to Saratoga Springs

My husband turned me on to Mika Brzezinski, the self-described sidekick on "Morning Joe," MSNBC's relaxed roundtable of the news of the day, on channel 49 between 6 and 9 a.m. She's smart, lively, personable, sassy and funny.
So I was glad when she was booked at the speaker for the Jan. 29 Cabin Fever Luncheon, a major fund-raiser of Soroptimist International of Saratoga County, the professional women's service organization of which I am a longtime member. We were lucky to get her.
And when someone on the Cabin Fever committee called to ask me who from The Saratogian could interview her, I said, "Me."
Mika managed to squeeze in about 10 minutes via cell phone while she was in a car, graciously continuing to chat as she had arrived at her destination. We covered a lot of ground in a short time, and her answers were frank and thoughtful. She's someone who would be fun to talk to not so much on the fly, if she ever slows down long enough.
Well, lucky for us, she'll be speaking and answering questions at the luncheon, at noon Jan. 29 at the Holiday Inn in Saratoga Springs. Here's a bald-faced plug: Go to http://www.soroptimistsaratoga.org/ for the order form.
To find out what Mika and I talked about, check out The Saratogian in a couple of weeks.
