The Rainbow In The Room

What if you had the power to make anything you said in rhyme come true? And were summoned before the Senate Subcommittee on Patriotic Inactivity to defend why you haven’t done more to aid Homeland Security in their efforts? Especially in light of 9/11?
Fantasy meets reality with Adam Montgomery: as magical and rare as a unicorn, yet tied to the real world at a time in our collective history when accountability was the priority of the day, especially for him, the one man who did what no one else could—sacrifice his anonymity and privacy to help us out in spite of the risks and limitations.
