We (Barney Rubin and Susan Blum) are a 60-ish couple living in New York City. Susan is a psychotherapist. Barney is a political scientist who has taught at Yale and Columbia and worked at the Council on Foreign Relations and the Center on International Cooperation at NYU. Currently he advises the State Department on Afghanistan and Pakistan. We have one cat and are both originally from Philadelphia. We are looking forward to the day that we can spend much more time in this house, but until then we hare happy to share it with others.
