MISSION CAPSULES: Worldwide, women make up more than half of the 35 million people living with HIV around the world. Frustina was in denial when she first started experiencing symptoms. Her husband had died of AIDS seven years earlier and she was concerned that she might have contracted HIV. Finally, Frustine was tested and it was confirmed that she was HIV positive. While she was initially concerned about how her community would react, Frustine has been overwhelmed by their support. Home based care volunteers - supported by a PWS&D program, came to help with household work, brought food and provided medication for pain relief. She also joined an HIV support group that comes together and supports and encourages each other. Frustine shares, "I am staying positive. I am healthy and able to work on my own."

MORE FROM THE DARWIN AWARDS

A man walked into a Louisiana Circle-K, put a $20.00 bill on the counter and asked for change. When the clerk opened the cash drawer, the man pulled a gun and asked for all the cash in the register, which the clerk promptly provided. The man took the cash and fled, leaving his $20.00 bill on the counter. The total amount of cash he got from the drawer .... $15.00! (If someone points and gun at you and gives you money, has a crime been committed?)

An Arkansas guy wanted some beer pretty badly. He decided to throw a cinder block through a liquor store window, grab some booze and run. He heaved the block over his head at the window. The cinder block bounced back and hit the would-be thief on the head, knocking him unconscious. The liquor store window was made of Plexiglas and the whole event was caught on videotape .....

As a female shopper exited a New York convenience store, a man grabbed her purse and ran. The clerk called 911 immediately and the woman was able to give a detailed description of the snatcher. Within minutes, police apprehended the snatcher. They put him in the car and drove back to the store. The thief was then taken out of the car and told to stand there for a positive ID. To which he replied, "yes officer, that's the lady I stole the purse from."
