    activist goes on anti-nader hunger strike
    SANTA MONICA, Calif. - A peace activist who once fasted for 63 days to protest movie violence and war toys is launching another hunger strike to persuade Ralph Nader to abandon his presidential bid.

    Jerry Rubin, 60, said he plans to consume only liquids from Saturday until Nov. 2 if Nader doesn't take a meeting with him.


    "I know Ralph Nader and I don't think he's doing the right thing," Rubin said Saturday. He said the consumer advocate's campaign is dividing the progressive political movement.

    The ironic thing is, this will only add to what little media attention Nader is recieving this election cycle.

    It's true-- an unfortunate reality. Nader was once a fine public advocate, but now having accepted funding and assistance from those whom he opposes ideologically, I've lost a lot of respect for him. And his lazy eye.

    I hope Nader will be on the ballot in every state. It's all about fairness and I have no other hidden motives. ;)
