Five numbing days after terrorists knocked down the World Trade Center and punched a gaping hole in the Pentagon, Southern Californians ventured out in search of normality.

Fears that the U.S. stock market's opening bell--whenever it occurs--could trigger an aftershock of Tuesday's disaster were somewhat allayed Wednesday.

Passengers on the hijacked airliners were able to dial 911 or call relatives to say goodbye because their planes were within range of ground-based cellular network antennas. In-flight cell phone calls are illegal because of concerns the signals could interfere with navigational equipment. Of course, that was not a concern of the desperate people who telephoned from Tuesday's flights.

In the summer of 1940, as German bombs rained down on England, Winston Churchill decided not to close the movie theaters. He wanted to demonstrate his nation could take Adolf Hitler's best shots and also wanted to buoy British morale by offering his compatriots some surcease at their beloved cinemas.

Schoolchildren, anglers, firefighters--so many people were moved to do something to help the victims of last week's terrorist attacks. "When the twin towers went down, you felt like you couldn't do anything," said 12-year-old Devin Morris of Sherman Oaks. "I couldn't give blood, because I'm a kid." Instead, Devin and a dozen middle school classmates at Foundations School Community in Van Nuys held a bake sale.
