Georgia Rep. Price Says HIV Comments Taken Out Of Context

Georgia Rep. Betty Price says her comments on people with HIV that ignited a national firestorm were "taken completely out of context." Price, the wife of former U.S. Health Secretary Tom Price, was in a legislative committee meeting Tuesday when she asked a state health official whether people with HIV could legally be quarantined. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Price said Saturday that she was just being "provocative." She said a health official had presented that Georgia is second only to Louisiana in the rate of new infections. Part of the reason is that more than a third of Georgians with HIV are not receiving care for it. She said that's what sparked her "rhetorical" comments. "I do not support a quarantine in this public health challenge and dilemma of undertreated HIV patients," Price said in a statement. "I do, however, wish to light a fire under all of us with responsibility in the public health arena — a fire that will result in resolve and commitment to ensure

Emails: Protests Spur College Officials To Talk With Players

As protests over racial injustice grab national attention in pro sports, some college and university officials are having pre-emptive talks with student-athletes and consulting each other amid concerns that such actions will spread to college sports, according to emails released Thursday. After five black cheerleaders at Kennesaw State University knelt during the national anthem at a September football game, athletic officials there sought advice from their counterparts at schools including the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, Duke University and Purdue University. The responses they got back offer a glimpse at what's happening in college athletic programs trying to strike a balance between supporting free expression and offending fans and donors. The emails were released Thursday in response to a request for Kennesaw State documents under Georgia's open records law. It was filed by Davante Lewis, the brother of the one of the cheerleaders who took a knee. The kneeling

Robots, Robbery, And Addiction: Revisiting Three Of Our Favorite Conversations

This week on "Two Way Street," we're listening back to three of our conversations with some of the bravest, most inventive women to ever step into our studio: writers Molly Brodak and Melissa Febos, and robotics engineer Ayanna Howard. Last fall, Molly Brodak joined us to discuss her memoir, " Bandit: A Daughter's Memoir ." She tells us about the first time she realized her father was a liar. He would go on to rob 11 banks outside of Detroit and become known as the "Super Mario Brothers Bandit" to the FBI and local news media. After his stint in prison, Brodak's father used her and her sister's social security cards to open credit cards. But despite all of the lying and stealing, Brodak tells us why she still loves her father. Then we hear from author Melissa Febos , who spoke to us last April about her memoir, " Abandon Me: Memoirs ." We dive into her past as a heroin addict, who despite her addiction, was a straight-A college student. Plus she tells us about her time as a
