47. Hollywood may not be a good idea.
Thanks for your insight. Hollywood may be well a dangerous idea to be approached only with extreme caution. I have almost no political experience for some 30 years, even as much of an observer.

(Did Springsteen draw opposition?)

Perhaps I was desperate but enthusiastic after reading so many excellent comments at Conyers' blog.

I also respect your earlier comment about choosing one's words thoughtfully for Conyers' blog.
