Jerry Rubin, the Yippie-turned-Yuppie credited with the sixties' chant, "Don't trust anyone over 30," has died two weeks after he was hit by a car while jaywalking in Los Angeles. Rubin, 56, gained fame as one of the Chicago Seven who led bloody protests against the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, then wore judicial robes into court -- inviting nearly 200 contempt citations -- while being tried on conspiracy charges in connection with the riots. He later became a tailored businessman, selling health foods and networking on Wall Street, and once said he cut his hair and shaved so people would listen.Post your opinion on theSocietybulletin board.
