Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Jim Moore, although ninety years old, is still active in developing ideas that will benefit people. Despite partial blindness and a pacemaker he delivers newspapers every day, plans and distributes leaflets, speaks out wherever he goes against poverty and injustice, and spends his spare time trying to get housing for the homeless. In 1931, under his birth name of Theodore Luesse, he went to prison for 21 months for obstructing legal process. What he was obstructing were evictions in Indiana during the Great Depression. He obstructed evictions of jobless people because of his deep belief that every person has the right to live, just because hes alive. All his arrests have been for a social cause. Since the government protects the habitats of animal life, it was and is Jims belief that this same protection should extend to human beings. Salty blue collar language and wit.
