33. Hell, my own family's an example.
My paternal grandfather was a Russian Jewish immigrant tailor. He supported a family and sent three sons to Hardvard dring he Depression.

My maternal grandfather was a Japanese immigrant who wasn't even allowed to become a US citizen until 40 years after he arrived. He started and ran a small carnation nursery to support his family of six children, five of whom were college graduates. Four of those went to UC Berkeley, which was tuition free at that time.

See that happening today? :grr:
