Danny Lee was determined to be at his wife's side when she gave birth to their second child. The roadie for the Backstreet Boys had permission to peel away from the band's tour after Monday's concert, and after a long night breaking down the stage in Boston, he caught the first flight home to Los Angeles the next morning.

It may seem, at first, a curious way to fight terrorism, to soften a blow so terrible that Edward Smith sometimes still feels its ache as if it landed yesterday. One day before the one-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the 40-year-old CEO will lead golfers through 18 holes at a Simi Valley course, raising money for victims and their families with every drive, pitch and putt.

Airport trash cans overflow with toothpaste and deodorant. Thousands of college students bend their heads over Arabic texts.

Ward L. Churchill has been angry for years, shaking a clenched fist at American power from the streets of Denver and the lecterns of academia. He has compared his country to Nazi Germany and urged the hanging of "war criminals" like Henry Kissinger, President Clinton and Madeleine Albright, the former secretary of State whom he called "that malignant toad." Most of all, he has been a firm believer in karma: What America sows, it shall surely reap. "Payback," he said. "Can be a real mother."
