Show Notes for Thursday, December 16, 2021


Dear John,

I've been dating my boyfriend for about five months. He's never met my family. We're going to head to my parent's house later this month. They've met online and I'm excited for them to meet in person. I'm not excited to have my boyfriend meet my brother and his wife. They've both been in and out of jail. My brother just got out of prison a year ago. They're planning to be there the same time we're there. I'm embarrassed to admit that I've never even mentioned that I have a brother. It never came up! Now it's weird that we've been dating five months and I'm going to introduce my police officer boyfriend to my ex-con brother and sister-in-law. I think I need to find a way to bring it up before we go, but now I've gotten inside my own head on this and have made it a bigger thing than it is. I googled this and found out 1 in 8 Americans has a felon in their family tree. That was according to I'm sure it's not a big deal. I just feel like I should have found a way to tell him about it a long time ago. What do you think?

An Arizona family is facing a nightmare situation after they crossed the border to Mexico with a gun. A mistake they say has cost them family separation and financial burden. They hope the community can help to bring a husband and father home in time for Christmas. Francine Nicholson’s husband has been locked up in a federal prison in Hermosillo, Mexico for almost five months. He faces two years in prison for transporting a firearm into Mexico. The family says they were not aware that the firearm was still in the vehicle when they crossed the border. They were on a family trip to Rocky Point, but never made it to their destination. The reality is Mexico's gun laws are among the strictest in the world. It’s been historically that way, said Jorge Mendoza-Yescas, the consul general of Mexico in Phoenix. “If somebody wants to carry a gun it needs a special permit by the military,” stated Mendoza-Yescas. But even getting a permit isn’t easy. The Mexican government only issues about 50 permits a year and not all firearms qualify for such a permit. Mendoza-Yescas said there’s a reason for the law to be so strict. “Because there’s a huge problem right now in Mexico with people carrying guns and they’re using them for bad purposes.” (
