Some time around 4 a.m., when Rosaleen Tallon has stretched out on a cot on the bare, freezing sidewalk, a still figure appears on the corner beside her. He is a firefighter named O'Toole, with broad shoulders and a drooping ginger-colored mustache, and he has driven down from the Bronx to Lower Manhattan a couple of hours before his shift started. He doesn't wake her, but stands there in the dark, quietly watching to make sure she is OK. It is Rosaleen's eighth night outside.

That was one corpse she would like to have seen for herself, Tallon said, her fiery words underscoring the change this suburban science teacher has undergone in the last decade.

WASHINGTON - Weeks after he took office, President Obama met privately with 40 grieving Americans, many clutching photographs of loved ones lost in terrorist attacks. The new president told them he would be closing Guantanamo Bay military prison within the year and putting many of the detainees there on trial in the U.S., where justice would be swifter. Five years later, the first and probably only federal court trial of a Sept. 11-related case will start with jury selection on Monday at a U.S. District courthouse in Lower Manhattan, blocks from ground zero, where the World Trade Center once stood.
