WHEN THE senior generation of arena rockers (the Rolling Stones , the Who , Bruce Springsteen , Paul McCartney ) stops performing, how will we ever raise money in a charity concert? Who's going to perform with Bon Jovi ? Matchbox 20 ? Maroon 5 ? Will any bands from the '80s and '90s still be rocking when their fans hit their disposable-income years?

Periodically and cyclically, the economy will stink, even more so for people who are less experienced, educated or trained, the youngest members of the work force. The Depression walloped one generation. The recession, oil shortage, and stagflation whipped mine. Many classmates avoided the job market, or the pronounced lack thereof, by diving into grad school and further debt, which drove them toward more lucrative professional if not necessarily innovative endeavors.

NOT TO SOUND totally old-school, but before I had even so much as kissed a boy, my mother used to get in my face and threaten to send me to St. Ann's Infant Home - a place where unwed teens used to be sent to live until they'd given birth - if I ever came home pregnant. I barely understood what she was carrying on about or why it mattered so much, but I knew I wasn't going wherever it was she was saying she would send me. It wasn't so much that it was an awful place, but it had a huge stigma attached to it. Maybe the students at Frayser High School, in Memphis, Tenn.

A couple of weekends ago, Andrea Bernotavicius competed in a triathlon. She swam a half mile in the Schuylkill, biked 15-plus miles in Fairmount Park, and ran a little more than three miles on Martin Luther King Drive. But Bernotavicius, 49, of Williamstown is no Ironwoman, by her own estimate. She entered the Aug. 3 SheROX Triathlon Series, her first, to see if she could at least finish. (She did, with a time of just over two hours, 11 minutes.) "I wanted to do a triathlon before I was 50," said Bernotavicius, who works in human resources for a Center City law firm.
