The biggest problem facing the United States of America today is not the economy, the Persian gulf, Bosnia-Herzegovina, unemployment or even drugs. It's kids. Our kids. The enemy is within. The society has lost faith in itself and its institutions. The nuclear family has fissioned. Authority is not only suspect, it is handcuffed. The American Dream is a hallucination. The melting pot didn't melt. The voices of unreason shout down the peacemakers. Nobody knows what to do.

There are students who run for school president, and students who run for class treasurer. And then there are Paul Trapani's students, who just run. In the Los Angeles Marathon. A group of the Aliso High School students strolled over to their history teacher Tuesday and offered him a casual greeting. "What's happening, T.?" they inquired as Trapani gingerly petted a cantankerous goose, one of several animals that inhabit the Reseda campus.

When Jorge Gonzalez rises to lead his fellow graduates in the Pledge of Allegiance, then walks across the stage to get his diploma today, it will be a proud moment in a life that only months ago seemed woefully short of promise. In and out of juvenile jails since he was 12 years old, Gonzalez had little hope he would ever finish a semester of school, much less graduate.

Three years ago, Sylvia Herrera began skipping classes at Canoga Park High one day each week. Within months, she was absent whole weeks at a time. Then she missed an entire semester. Like most teen-agers with a history of truancy, Herrera was transferred to a continuation school where specialized help keeps students on an academic track. Still, Herrera wasn't too keen about ever graduating from high school--until she ran in the L. A. Marathon.

When 17-year-old Norma Puentes steps to the starting line this morning for the Los Angeles Marathon, it will be with fierce determination. A junior at John H. Frances Polytechnic High School in Sun Valley, she intends to finish all 26 miles and 385 yards--to prove to herself and her family that she is someone.

Sandra Loera was not aware that she was tied for the highest grade-point average in Roosevelt High's senior class until a routine grade check by her counselor last fall. The news prompted mixed feelings for Loera, who has been named the school's outstanding math student for the past two years and who was the recipient of last year's Harvard Prize Book Award--an honor given to students who combine academic excellence with achievement in other fields.

There have been some crazy things on pay-per-view television. There was Jimmy Connors playing Martina Navratilova in a contrived tennis match last September. Before that, there was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar playing Julius Erving in an infamous one-on-one basketball game that attracted all of about 6,000 subscribers nationwide. Now, along come a couple of motorcycle daredevils, Robbie Knievel, son of Evel, and England's Eddie Kidd, who will compete in a jump-off at a park in Panama City Beach, Fla.
