Growing up near Mexico City, Adam Cortes saw how much better
life was in the United States through his TV set.
Watching 1960s sitcoms like “I Dream of Jeannie” and “Leave It
to Beaver” with Spanish voice-overs, Cortes noticed how nicely the
characters dressed, how nice their cars were and the high-quality
roads and highways there were in America.
