EAST MORICHES, N.Y. -- On the morning after, this seaside town was quiet. But the tragedy was on everyone's mind."It's the first thing people say," said Pat Zak, who owns an antique store in town. "This is something everybody can relate to. New York to Paris. I've been to Paris. Now, I'm afraid to go."Outside of this town that is little more than a stoplight and a handful of stop signs, the media horde gathered to await the latest briefing. There was a sense of purpose in the encampment. The hum of generators for the six extension antennas and 15 satellite dishes filled the air. But in the town, people went about their business.

NEW YORK -- Curtis Sliwa, the Guardian Angels' founder and leader, has admitted that six of his group's early crime-fighting exploits were actually faked, and former and present associates contend that even more of the group's activities were publicity stunts.Rather than riding the subways to protect the public, the associates said, Mr. Sliwa and his wife, Lisa, run a group that has become little more than a security force for a block of midtown restaurants, its membership and activities greatly exaggerated, its patrols -- in their trademark red berets and T-shirts -- converging only on highly publicized situations.

RESCUES: THE LIVESOF HEROES.Michael Lesy.Farrar, Straus & Giroux.213 pages. $18.95.It might be a good idea to read the epilogue of "Rescues: ThLives of Heroes" before its prologue. In it, Michael Lesy, author of seven books, including the classic "Wisconsin Death Trip," examines neurological and sociological reasons for empathy and altruism. Most germane to the nine rescues described in this book, he examines the nature of heroism."Heroism is a conjunction of opposites," he says. It is both an act of self-sacrifice and an act of self-reclamation.
