Re "The Lure of the Exotic" by Justin Hayford, October 4

I work at a domestic violence shelter, with the playwright Mia [McCullough]. The reviewer writes about Brad's call to the hotline and his being reprimanded for almost saying Michael Ann's name: "though there would be no conceivable repercussions if he had." Actually, most domestic violence shelters operate on a strict code of confidentiality. Once a client's confidentiality is broken (such as from an unknown person calling and stating a name) many shelters will insist that the resident relocate to another shelter. I think this is an important point to clarify for all.
