Is it a rite of passage, or a series of struggles that can leave lasting scars? Send your mind back to that moment in time when you were trapped between adolescence and adulthood, when insecurity was the dreadful secret that trapped you in a lonely space which you were convinced was your singular affliction. We all had ways of concealing it, or at least dealing with it, of course. Some were blessed with natural grace or good looks, while others used sarcasm or athletic skill. Those with social skills could run with the pack, but there was always the danger that the pack might turn on you. It's a difficult time of life; it always has been. But if the psychiatrists and social scientists are right, it is, in some respects, worse these days than it has ever been, especially for girls. Girls, it seems, have developed the evolution of social nastiness into an art form, to a point at which it is almost dangerous. The need to fit in has become so acute, the social hierarchies so refined that it overcomes and overpowers almost everything else. ABC News also speaks to Rosalind Wiseman, author of "Queen Bees and Wanna Be's."

At a certain point -- and it tends to be a moving target even for the very rich -- money takes on a different aspect. It becomes either a means of keeping score or a tool for influencing events. For George Soros, it has long been both. Mr Soros has so much money and a proven aptitude for making even more that it is difficult to simply compare his activities or his ambitions to those of other wealthy individuals. The scope with which Soros employs his fortune is such that he is easily compared to governments, whose very survival he sometimes underwrites or threatens. This is not to say that his investments are less vulnerable than anyone else's. During the slump of Asian, European and US markets, for example, George Soros may have lost as much as $2 billion, on paper at least. There may be many people alive today with a vision of how they would like to change the world. George Soros must be one of only a handful with both the means and the determination to do so.

ABC News Nightline The Swift Boat Controversy: What They Saw on the River
Manufacturer: ABC News
John Kerry's service in Vietnam became a campaign issue when he was running for president in 2004. The group calling itself Swift Boat Veterans for Truth alleged that Kerry had distorted the truth about what happened during the war and questioned whether he deserved the medals he received. ABC News brings viewers accounts from eyewitnesses who have not spoken before: the Vietnamese who fought against him. ABC News went to Vietnam, to the coordinates taken from the U.S. military after-action report from Kerry's battle for which he won the Silver Star. And there ABC News found several people who had either witnessed the events of that day, or in some cases, had actually fought against the swift boats. Do their accounts favor one version or the other? Can these questions be definitively settled? You'll have to judge.
