Streetwise: Riding the rails
Erlan Bliss, Lawrence Livermore Lab physicist: I was born in Chicago at the Illinois Central hospital. We moved to Wisconsin and would visit friends and family in Chicago. I remember when I was 12 I took the train for the first time by myself to Aurora and had to change trains at Chicago Union Station. In those days it wasn’t a big deal, but sending a 12-year-old away on a train by himself wouldn’t happen today, especially with a change of trains in a huge station.KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA
