Area grandpa has full blown hearing AIDS.

Columbus, OH - Polly Solomon, 12, was devastated to learn recently that her grandpa, Francis Solomon, 82, has full blown hearing AIDS.

"I don't know how much longer he has to live." The 6th-grader said, fighting back tears. "We've been studying this at school so I know everyone who gets it eventually puts on a tank top, shrivels up and dies. I'm going to miss him terribly."

"What?!" Grandpa Solomon shouted, still getting used to the settings on his new in-ear apparatus.
