After Mohamed el Amir Atta disappeared from the Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg in 1997, he turned up here on an island in the middle of the Elbe River, at a red-brick prewar housing project on a broad, bleak street that faces a ribbon-wire fence and the Hamburg harbor, gray and forbidding, beyond. Wilhelmsburg is industrial, worn-out, so psychologically remote that it is sometimes called the Forgotten Island. It's here but hidden.

The MD-88 passenger jetliner was cruising above 25,000 feet but there was no one at the controls. Preoccupied with protecting the cockpit door while they took turns going to the bathroom, the pilots momentarily forgot the cardinal safety rule that the captain or the co-pilot must be strapped in and in control of the aircraft at all times. The November incident illustrates an emerging safety issue: The focus on aviation security since Sept.

The jokey cliche that your waiter also is an actor has acquired an unfunny edge since Sept. 11. The decline in major sectors of New York's economy since the terrorist attacks means that performers, who always struggle for theatrical work, now are scrambling for traditional "survival jobs" as well. Actor Marco Kujovic, for example, lost his waiting job at the Grill Room in the World Financial Center, a popular dining spot that closed after the World Trade Center disaster next door.

As President Bush warned Americans on Thursday of a long, hard war against terrorism, the Defense Department took the first concrete steps toward such an action, recommending the mobilization of thousands of reservists and ordering an aircraft carrier battle group to remain near the Arabian Sea. "Now is an opportunity to do generations a favor by coming together and whipping terrorism--hunting it down, finding it and holding them accountable," Bush told reporters at the White House.

Sheila Marie Ornedo, heavy with child, is due to give birth in February. The Los Angeles nurse is alone this Christmas, preparing for her baby girl's arrival without Ruben, her husband, by her side. Ruben is the one who should be massaging her aching back, as he used to; picking her up from work at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and taking her out to dinner, as he used to. He should be helping to fix up the nursery, as he was going to.

In a major crackdown on a Palestinian terrorist organization in the United States, four reputed members have been indicted on racketeering charges that include the killing of a teen-age daughter of one of them to silence her, conspiring to murder Jews and discussing the possibility of blowing up the Israeli Embassy here. The indictment, unsealed Thursday by a federal grand jury in St. Louis, marked the first legal action against the shadowy Abu Nidal organization here.

The one thing everybody agrees on is that a CIA cable transmitted Aug. 27 over a classified government computer network warned that two "Bin Laden related individuals" had entered the United States and that two other suspected terrorists should be barred from entering. The CIA had already notified the White House and other senior policymakers in early August that the exiled Saudi militant Osama bin Laden was determined to launch a terrorist attack within the United States.

The people who head Hollywood's media conglomerates are not accustomed to taking meetings without knowing the agenda. But that's exactly what they will do Sunday as about 40 of them sit down in Beverly Hills for brunch with Karl Rove, President Bush's senior advisor. In broad strokes, the White House has said it wants the involvement of the entertainment industry in the campaign against terrorism. There have been hints of having Hollywood create public service announcements.

Zacarias Moussaoui, the man indicted as a Sept. 11 accomplice, tried to speak with prosecutors about the death penalty and classified information but they refused, the government said Thursday. Prosecutors said they were informed of the request Tuesday by a jail official, an indication that Moussaoui, who wants to represent himself in the case, is already trying to do so. Moussaoui, however, cannot make that decision on his own. U.S.

A defiant Zacarias Moussaoui--the only person charged in the United States with terrorism in connection with the Sept. 11 attacks--told a judge Monday that he wants to represent himself in a trial without a jury, and called for the destruction of America and Jews everywhere. Moussaoui's fiery remarks appeared to surprise even his own court-appointed defense team. They came during what was supposed to be a routine hearing before U.S.

Chantyl Peterson bursts through the front door, greets her mother and slings her schoolbooks onto the floor. She's a healthy seventh-grader who loves horseback riding and playing the flute and doesn't mind homework. Nine years ago, she was dying. A New York City firefighter saved her life back then, but not in the usual way. His bone marrow was a perfect match for the little Nevada girl, then 5 and badly needing a transplant.

A patched and battle-ready guided missile destroyer Cole returned to duty with a flag-waving, horn-blasting send-off Friday, a year and a half after a terrorist bombing in Yemen blew a hole in its side and killed 17 sailors. Hundreds of people cheered along the shore as the Cole, gleaming in the sunlight, set off from Northrop Grumman Corp.'s Ingalls Shipyard for its home port in Norfolk, Va. The Cole returns to duty after 14 months of repairs and improvements.

For 12 years, Dave Szott has looked forward to suiting up on every Sunday in the fall and getting into the trenches with the rest of his offensive line mates to get down and dirty. But, as the NFL is taking its first regular-season Sunday off for reasons other than labor disputes, Szott, the Washington Redskins' starting right guard, will look forward to some down time to reflect on what has been a tumultuous week for himself and his family.

To have lived at the start of all this--to have watched the sudden, thudding impact of those doomed planes or the impossible crumble of the world's most potent symbols of prosperity and power--is to understand on a visceral level that American life has changed, perhaps forever. True, with clenched jaws and admirable faith in the future, we all got back to work. We carried on with the business of America while beginning the grim work of recovery and retribution.
