QUARTERLIFERS - "The job market is so bad that unemployment went down - because people were so discouraged they stopped looking for work. But the jobless aren't the only ones complaining. Meet the employed, educated 'quarterlifers' in crisis. They're 20- and 30-somethings who might appear to have it made in this cruel economy, but are still asking themselves, à la the late Miss Peggy Lee: 'Is That All There Is?'" From "Woe Are We/ Educated, Employed 'Quarterlifers' Looking for More" by Geraldine Sealey.
