The Snob Talks Having It All, Immigration, Fifty Shades of Horrible on NPR

All this and more as The Snob pops in to the "Beauty Shop" segment on NPR's Tell Me More with Michel Martin.

The Snob Will Be On NPR's Tell Me More Today

I'm back ... on NPR's "Tell Me More" with Michel Martin this Wednesday. We'll be talking about the recent Supreme Court decision on Arizona's controversial anti-illegal immigration law, women "not" being able to have it all and that horrible Fifty Shades of Grey book that's oh-so-popular. I'll post the audio of the chatfest when it goes live later today online. Check your local NPR listings for Tell Me More.
