50. Actually, I think my autobiography would be an exercise in boredom

I was usually a spectator, or, at best, a peripheral participant.

As for books, well, now that you mention it, I DID write one. It was called the first (and probably last) sci-fi/historical/suspense/romance novel. It did get some very friendly reviews, though. I got some great plugs for the back cover, too--Howard Dean, Spider-Man creator Stan Lee and Adrian Cronauer, the real man portrayed by Robin Williams in "Good Morning Vietnam." Adrian, by the way, was NOTHING like the Robin Williams character. I think there are still some youtube lectures with lectures given by him.

Yes, today is a horror for me. My European friends, who used to envy me presidents like Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, now laugh at me, and greet me with "America First!" and they mean it as a joke. A shit show, indeed!
