Road Rage


Incidents of road rage increase in the bumper-to-bumper traffic of the summer. Just recently in San Diego, an off-duty police officer was accused of shooting at another driver in an apparent road rage dispute.

Paula wrote in about her husband, Greg. On the way out of town for a much-needed vacation, Greg and Paula encountered an aggressive driver who nearly drove them off the road. Greg normally keeps his cool - he spends a lot of time on the road driving large loads. In this case he didn't: before too long, both cars had pulled over and Greg had the guy in a headlock.

Greg and Paula join guest host Aaron Henkin to tell the story of what happened when they got caught up in road rage.


HIV/AIDS is spreading across the American South, particularly among the African American population. This week, the Black AIDS Institute issued a report criticizing the federal government for not doing more to help.

African American woman are the most vulnerable to infection. DeVondia Roseborough found out she was HIV-positive in December 2003. Like many of the women she's since met, she was abused as a girl and learned to seek security in sexual relationships with men.

Although an episode with AIDS nearly killed her, DeVondia is healthy now and speaking frankly with young women in her community - including her own teenage daughters - about what they should do to avoid HIV.
