" They gave my brother and I an incredible education. I went to Stanford and Georgetown, and my brother went to Columbia and the University of California, Berkeley. "

I believe the correct English would be, "They gave my brother and me..." "Me" being the object pronoun while "I" would be used as a subject pronoun. In this sentence "They" is the correct subject pronoun.

Dear Slug, why be so critical, he's only running for Attorney General.

And he's from Torrance.

"Nearly four decades ago, my parents immigrated to America seeking a better life. We grew up in the basement of a stranger's house and sold gifts at flea markets to make ends meet. After several years we opened a gift store in a shopping center, and later opened one store in a shopping mall. My brother and I worked at the store after school."

Dan Walker also comes from that swap-meet environment, and he became the major.
