Last week, a TV news reporter and her cameraman were shot live, on air by a former colleague. That story made national news but every day someone is killed by gun violence. The question is... Why? Does it have to be this way? Is there anything we can do to stop it or even slow it down? This week on IN THE KNOW, we'll talk with Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America about what they say are some common sense steps we can take as a country. I hope you'll join us tomorrow night at 8:00 pm for IN THE KNOW. And be sure to send me your thoughts, questions and comments even before the show.
Another weekend behins us, so another Monday edition of The CC Radio Network. Felix and Dr. Marc welcome you to our discussion of guns, gun control or the lack of control. Comedian John Oliver put it very well when he said that after the "shoe bomber, we all had to remove our shoes before we enter a plane. But after 31 school and movie theatre shootings, nothing has been done...no background checks!!! What reason can we give for this??? Plus, we also have the news of the week in review after the weekend news talk shows. Call us at 646-696-3275 with your opinions...have coffee in hand.

We all know what's wrong. Ask anyone and they can point to guns, the economy, terrorism, unemployment, immigration...the list is seemingly endless. But like putting a band aid on the surface of an underlying bone disease...other than appearances not much gets fixed.
It’s easy to respond to the latest act of senseless violence that occurred in Virginia yesterday by resurrecting the cry for gun control, but if our problems are so numerous and so easily identified, isn't it time we looked at root causes instead of symptoms?
Tonight's show will explore not what's happening but the basis for it and the obstacles to getting beyond our current difficulties.
Good evening, tomorrow on The Meter, we will once again cover guns and Americans. Is there a craze and obsession? This week in Virginia a reporter and cameraman were murdered during a live broadcast by a disgruntled former employee, that happened to be gay, black, and an Obama supporter. Top democrats sounded the trumpet for more gun control. Is the problem the guns or is it something else? Also, we will cover the ten years since hurricane Katrina destroyed New Orleans and ravished the Gulf coast. Have the people there been forgotten and if so is racism the culprit? In another development, the Univeraity of Tennessee has announced it will no longer use the pronouns "he" and "she" citing it encourages gender discrimination. Is the future of America genderless? Please join the discussion at 9:00 AM. The call in number is 347-308-8933. Your input is essential.
Max doesn't remember ever not creating a story, pen or no pen. A writer and lover of books since the age of nine, Max first set pen to page as a hobby, constructing stories that were anything but fit for children. Entertaining classmates while simultaneously concerning surrounding adults with blood-ridden tales of gory mysteries and heavy suspense that "just came to mind", Max, with the help of family and the encouraging words of an inspiring fifth grade teacher, continued to develop this gift.
Little was it known at the time, but said gift would become a lifeline.
From horrific trauma in Max's teen years, writing played an instrumental part in the difficult recovery and the Warrens, Bennetts, and Johnsons, three interconnected families all with issues, mysteries, and secrets that threaten their livelihood and lives,were born.
Though relatively new to the publishing game, Max reads everything and everyone and relishes the journey, learning something new each day.

Lorraine Pestell was born in London and has lived and worked as an IT professional all over the world, including the UK, several European capitals, the USA and Singapore, before moving to Melbourne, Australia, for the turn of the millennium. Having suffered from chronic clinical depression since childhood, and later diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder after a violent marriage and other challenging events, she turned to creative writing as therapy and to escape from the world.
A passionate advocate for mental health awareness and rational suicide, Lorraine has two main goals for her writing: first, to inspire fellow sufferers to rise above their symptoms and make a success of their lives; and second, to encourage non-sufferers to tolerate, support and even love those afflicted with mental illness in their quest to live a "normal" life.
The six-part contemporary fiction serial, "A Life Singular", is truly Lorraine's life's work, starting out as an adolescent romance in her early teens. It has since become six long books exploring the human mind and social justice, wrapped in the universal theme of love and our endless fascination for celebrity. Parts One to Four are available now, with Part Five due for release in March 2016.
