why is rubin so determined to identify himself as a "peace activist"? could it because he has never had a job in his entire life and has been dependent on social security disability? that could explain his activism for people who are really disabled. i know many disabled people who proud and determined to hold a job. what is jerry's story?

Rubin is an ex-smoker who wants to see results with an effective smoking ordinance to protect those living in multi-unit housing in our community, so I'm voting for him.
