peanut butter and jelly ministries preserved in the memory hole
Author's Statement of Purpose: My goal is to get more people to be interested in the PUBLIC COMMENT + COMMUNITY FORUM on TV Tacoma. I want folks to recognize our civic speakers on the street and have compassion for the thundering engine driving them. "I will forge new connections to people orphaned by civilization." - RR Anderson

"Tonight we are short one of our most prolific public commenters. Mr Guthrie of Peanut Butter Jelly Street Ministries, who always spoke with kindness to the council was a fierce advocate of Homelessness Awareness in Tacoma. Well he got sick and passed on recently. He's in a better place now and we will all miss him we of the city council. He was a character."
RR Commentary: oh man. I am seriously bummed out now.

|I have known Jerry for about a dozen years. Long before he was a homeless advocate.
He used to bring his son into Stadium Video and we would engage in long civic discussions.
Much of Jerry's passion for homeless came from how he saw his fellow Vietnam Era Vets treated (or mistreated) by our social system. Lately he began trying to open more dialog about the state of programs for the returning Iraqi veterans and thier needs.
I believe that his son is now a police officer and I wish the best for him.

RR Anderson is one of the most curious characters in the UFO lore and the history of underground cartooning. He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the Tacoma Cartoonists Society.
