Morning Coffee (2/28/13)

This is basically the EVERYTHING IS TERRIBLE edition. I'm sorry. I will find you a whole list of happy/fun/cute Friday links to make up for it tomorrow.

Please read Fringe actress Jasika Nicole on Quvenzhane Wallis and her own experiences with a "difficult" name, as well as her feelings about the running joke in which her character's name was constantly gotten wrong by an older white male character.

No seriously, if I tell you that her story included things that make me like Joshua Jackson more than I ever had before, will you please read it? Thanks.
