NEW YORK -- The nation's Boomer-in-Chief celebrated his 50th birthday last night at Radio City Music Hall with a bash big enough to herald an entire generation reaching middle age. The night-long party for Bill Clinton brought together 20,000 of his friends and supporters, featured six decades of American music and raised $10 million for the Democratic Party.Clinton needed help from his 16-year-old daughter, Chelsea, to blow out the candles on his huge cake. Earlier in the evening, he joked that the three surviving Beatles, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, are all older than 50."

One prisoner wrote of his love of soccer, while another wistfully chronicled the life he'd enjoyed on a horse farm many years ago. A third inmate penned a letter to a young daughter: "This year on your birthday behave yourself, take care of your little sisters and study a lot for me. Your daddy loves you very much." As Marion Chalfant reads the essays and letters of prisoners who not long ago could barely read, she can't stop marveling at the powerful words she helped unleash. "It's a miracle to me that all these positive things can come out of a negative environment," she says.

I ATTENDED A surprise 40th birthday party the other night at which the guest of honor was so surprised, it nearly killed him.The party was organized by the man's wife, who, knowing her husband was returning home exhausted from a business trip, thought it would be a real hoot to have three dozen people jump out from behind the furniture and scare the guy half to death.Anyway, the poor guy walked in and the lights snapped on and everybody yelled, "Happy Birthday!"And, I don't know, I guess he thought he was being attacked or something.

Just after dusk yesterday, Shawn Tiller's mother arrived at an East Baltimore street corner with bundles of colorful balloons and teddy bears for her boy. Friends embraced her and passed out candles. In hushed tones, they asked if it would be appropriate to sing "Happy Birthday." Tiller would have turned 17 yesterday. Instead of celebrating, his parents and about 50 of his friends stood on the cracked pavement where he was gunned down over the weekend for a candlelight vigil. They tied the balloons and toys to a signpost.

My sweet baby boy Aaron turned 1 on Saturday. I still can't quite wrap my head around how fast this year has gone by. I knew it would be fleeting. This isn't my first rodeo, after all, and I'm stunned every day by just how grown-up my 4 1/2-year-old is. And with Aaron being born before my husband returned from his deployment to Afghanistan, I knew that first few weeks would fly. But knowing that, and knowing that we're a two-and-through family and that I wouldn't be doing this again, made me think that if I held on a little tighter to every moment, maybe time would slow down.

EVERY year I have a birthday, and this year was no exception. For a long time I was afraid to admit that I was experiencing birthdays because in those days Americans hated for people to get older, which is what happens on birthdays.Nowadays, though, it's all right to have birthdays and maybe even a smart idea to lie by claiming more birthdays than you really have under your belt because nowadays practically everybody is not just old, but downright cheeky about it.That's because being old makes you part of the biggest, toughest lobby the U.S. government has ever faced: the old people's lobby.

NEW YORK -- He marched into the stadium surrounded by six security guards, the light of a television minicam bouncing off his face, kids and parents trying to keep up with him, screaming "Happy Birthday" every step of the way.It was another U.S. Open, another prime-time show when New York stopped for a couple of hours, and took notice of a limping old man running down tennis balls, chasing after dreams that should have long since been extinguished.Jimmy...
