No, but with two lawyers here, we'll fight it pro se.

I am sorry, I just had to respond to this. Perhaps the old man was the original Harry Potter, but I say, Harry Potter is not dead. I was born with the name Harry Graham Potter and have kept it, asking my associates to call me Harold so that one is not continuously reminded.

Interesting, I have been a writer of Wizard fantasy and creator of Dragon art since the 1982 madness of Dungeons and Dragons.

I also hold an MA in Latin.
