Music Applause good morning it's a pleasure to be here this morning and ask your indulgence on two things it's allergy season so I have a real hard time during this time of year speaking and to most of the speaking I do when I walk up to the podium is very technical it deals with cybercrime and identity theft forgery embezzlements and things of that nature I don't often talk about my life but Google has asked me today to do something that different and talk a little bit about my life so I will do that and then at the end of course I'll take questions and those questions can be about any subject matter that you I'd like to ask as you know I've had a lot of people tell my story I had a great movie director write a film about my life I've had a great Broadway musical team make a Tony award-winning Broadway musical about my life had a popular television show on TV white collar for four years creating around my life and most of those very creative people have actually never met me personally but they've enjoyed telling my story from their point of view so I thought I would take a few minutes this morning and actually tell you the story from my point of view I was raised just north of New York City in Westchester County New York I was actually one of four children in the family the so called middle child of the four I was educated there by the Christian Brothers of Ireland in a private Catholic school called Iona where I went to school from kindergarten to high school by the time I had reached the age of 16 in the tenth grade my parents after 22 years of marriage when they decided to get a divorce unlike most divorces where the children were usually the first to know my parents were very good about keeping that a secret I remember being in the tenth grade when the father walked in the classroom one afternoon asked a brother to excuse me from class when I came out in the hallway the father handed me my books and told me that one of the brothers would drive me to the county seat and why Plains New York where I would meet my parents and they would explain what was going on I remember the brother dropped me at the steps of a big stone building and told me to go on up the steps and my parents would be waiting for me in the lobby emember climbing the steps seeing a sign on the building it said Family Court but I really didn't understand what that meant when I arrived in the lobby my parents were not there but I was ushered into the back of an immense courtroom where my parents were standing before a judge I couldn't hear what the judge was saying nor my parents response but eventually the judge saw me at the back of the room and motioned me to approach the bench so I walked up to stand in between my parents I remember distinctly that the judge never looked at me he never acknowledged I was standing there he simply read from his papers and said that my parents were getting a divorce and because I was 16 years of age I would need to tell the court which parent I chose to live with I started to cry so I turned and ran out of the courtroom judge called for a 10-minute recess but by the time my parents got outside I was gone my mother never saw me again for about seven years until I was a young adult contrary to the movie my father never saw me where ever spoke to me again in the mid-1960s running away was very popular thing for young people a lot of them got caught up in haight-ashbury the hippie scene the drug scene instead I took a few belongings to my home packed him in a bag ordered what was in the New Haven and Hartford railroad for the short train ride down to Grand Central Terminal in New York my father did own the stationary store in Manhattan it was located on the corner of 40th and Madison like all of us we had to work in that store so from the time I was about 13 I made deliveries for my dad in the summer on a bike I knew the city very well so naturally I started looking for the same type of work there were a lot of signs on the window stock board delivery boy part-time I'd walk in and apply so tell me young man how old here at 16 how'd you go in high school at tenth grade I'll hire you now I went to work for a small amount of money a few hours a day but I soon realized that couldn't support myself on that amount of money I also realized as long as people believed I was 16 years old they weren't going to pay me any more money at 16 I was six foot tall I've always had a little gray hair my friends in school used to say that once a week when we dressed in a suit for mass I look more like a teacher so I decided to lie about my age in New York we had a driver's license at 16 back then it didn't have a photo on it just an IBM card so I altered one digit of my date of birth I was actually born in April of 1948 but I dropped the four converted it to a three and that made me 26 years old I walked around applying for the same type of work people gave me a little more money few more hours but even then it
