Who are you?
Ken Adelman: Originally Chicago, Illinois. And now Washington, D.C. and Aspen.
Well I was born in middle class, or lower middle class on the south side of Chicago. And it was wonderful. We had a neighborhood school. We took our bikes to school. It was very unpretentious, and very good neighborhood. And people say, “Well you didn’t have much money.” We didn’t know we didn’t have much money. There was no one there to tell us. We were relatively middle class or lower middle class, so we never thought about it. Anything we ever wanted to do we could do.
