Domestic Violence and HIV/AIDS intersect and most people find that surprising. Abusers are usually promiscuous and move around from one relationship to another. Sometimes having multiple relationships.
How does this play into how the STATUS of HIV/AIDS become a part of the conversation?
It is very important to know where you STAND.

November's show will feature the book, One Family's AIDS, by host, J'son M. Lee. One Family’s AIDS is the story of Gene Alexander McCoy - a young, educated African-American man who finds himself in a race for time to make peace with his family and God upon being diagnosed with HIV. The story, told from four different perspectives, chronicles Gene's life as he confronts such issues as HIV/AIDS, family, abandonment and homophobia. With the help of his over-bearing mother, a nurturing grandmother, and an uncle who doesn't feel comfortable talking about Gene's sexuality or disease, we learn the complexities of love and relationships, the damaging results of fear and shame, and how the relentless quest for the truth ultimately leads us back to each other.
Our guest host will be Levon Putney, News Anchor/Reporter at WCBS 880 News.

Joining Melissa and myself, is of course Sam Way, and latter on Deborah Berry. God, don't let me burn this night up! It get's better. Jeff Gabbard stops by LIVE! from the Downtown Milton Studio. Jeff is the Fire Chief of the Cambridge City Fire Department by 24/7, and Indiana Deputy Fire Marshall by 7 days a week. Oh, EMS, Nurse, Master Firefighter, even a drag car racer. Let's talk about Fire Safety and prevention. Jeff and both his 'staffs' did just that this past week, going into the schools and addressing citizens about 'blazing hell' - which turns into trauma for someone. We learned not to play with matches, and graduated to smoke alarms and personal fire extengushers. But, MR and MRS TBI (or Miss), do you know when to use, HOW to use, or properly checked the fighting apperatice?
Need help? Take notes. This is a fantastic opportunity to discus fire, EMT and first-respoce questions. Have any? Ever been on the other side, where you was the FIRST needing response, but was, uh, knocked out or something?
More first responce of the lawful side is expected. Milton Police Chief Josh Russell may stop by, time permitting (busy schedule that EVER changes, he has) and discuss house and home safety, neighborhood watch programs and just what to do if that weird looking goblin' hangs around your house too long during Halloween. Josh is also an emergency responder, thank you God - he's done it at my house a FEW times. My version of C.O.P.S. - Concerned, Offering Police Service. Talk to an officer, share and trade TBI concerns of living alone, confussion and efforts by both us, and them. Register.
Yep, Sting said I could, so I'm playing The Police during breaks tonight....
