Bob Ingersoll

By day Bob Ingersoll was an attorney in the Cuyahoga County Public Defender Office, Appellate Division in Cleveland, Ohio, until he retired in 2009. But in the “Real World” he has also been a freelance writer since 1975, when he sold his first comic-book story to the late, lamented Charlton Comics. He’s still at it and, in addition to his long-running column “The Law Is a Ass” has sold stories to DC, Marvel, Innovation, Now Comics, Comico, Kitchen Sink and others; as well as co-authoring the novels Captain America: Liberty’s Torch and Star Trek: The Case of the Colonist’s Corpse. Bob is married with children, which is about as close to Al Bundy as he cares to get.

    Mr. Ingersoll, in some of your earlier columns regarding losing American citizenship, I’ve seen you bring up Grace Kelly, Queen of Monaco, and you mentioned that by taking that title, she was FORCED to renounce her American citizenship. Now, some quick research brings up that this happened before Afroyim. So as the Fourteenth Amendment is currently read, does that mean someone could now become sovereign of a foreign state and still keep their American citizenship, if they wanted to for some reason?

    You have some incredible articles here! Two things:
    You misspelled “stripped” as “striped” near the end of the article.
    Is there a place where we can read the missing-number articles you’ve written? There seem to be a few gaps and the numbers start in the early 300’s.
