Today we have MORNING BUZZ: Is Snooki Pregnant? Idol recap plus the Bullying conversation continues. Are kids being bullied to death?
 
Plus our guest, Stephen Gallup, who BS degree in chemistry and zoology (a pre-medical curriculum) and an MA in English from the University of Virginia. Stephen has worked continuously as a technical writer since 1977. Prior to his son’s birth in 1985, he had also written personality and travel features for various newspapers as well as short fiction that appeared in small literary journals.
 
Stephen Gallup’s life changed fundamentally with the birth of his disabled son Joseph. Recognizing the problem, he pursued answers that he felt certain must exist. After consulting with physicians for more than a year, and reluctantly concluding that they had no answers, he found and implemented an intensive treatment campaign that resulted in dramatic improvements in his son’s condition. Facing the limitations of that course, he continued to educate himself on available options, meanwhile writing a book that explores the limits of what we can learn and do.
 
His book: WHAT ABOUT THE BOY? is a first-person true account of a family who refused to accept limitations when told they had no choice. It chronicles the willingness of a husband and wife to sacrifice their own lives for the sake of their child. This is a story of dissenters, whose challenge to authority was simply in the cause of achieving normal life, for themselves and for their developmentally disabled son.
