In a theater you have that many more seats, so that many more people, and they are feeding you, telling you how far you can go or what you can do.

I can't say it's autobiographical, but I do tell a number of anecdotes that I think are amusing.

Except for one thing, I no longer do benefits for research, I do benefits to make sure the people who are infected are taken care of are treated, and fed and housed, and their lives made a little easier.

And I hate autobiographies, I don't know why.
