This week we look at the phase of life that George Bernard Shaw once famously said was "wasted on the young:" youth. We'll hang out with local kids who are practicing an increasingly rare custom: walking and biking to school. We'll go backstage with child actors at Arena Stage, and we'll head to D.C.'s Kenilworth neighborhood, where residents have been waiting... and waiting... to find out if a new recreation center can be built on the site of a former landfill.
