As a lawyer, I specialize as an intellectual property. That's where I come in, ladies and gentlemen, the intellectual property. And First Amendment litigate and First Amendment litigation as well as a comic, particularly in publishing film, television and news and new media. I guess the author of the shores of Bohemia, a Cape Cod story 1910 to 1960, arousing account of the artist and political revolutionaries who made the cape a hub of American culture in the earliest 20th in the early 20th century.
