MEULABOH, Indonesia - Four days after the killer tsunami swept away a large portion of this city of 30,000 people, aid is only beginning to arrive. The death toll is unknown, but according to military estimates there are 4,000 bodies and 7,000 missing. The quake and tsunami were known to have killed many in the provincial capital, Banda Aceh, and relief efforts had begun in greater earnest there. But Meulaboh, the city closest to the quake's epicenter, was the question mark. For days after the disaster, no one could reach the city, even by helicopter.

Corwyn and Cindy Fischer were waiting for a ferry on Lake Chelan in north-central Washington this month. No boats were in sight, no wind, and the lake was calm. Then, without warning, the lake water began rushing up the rocky beach beside the dock. Four or five times the waves retreated, turned and rushed 8 feet up the beach. "We just kind of looked at one another," Cindy Fischer said. Her husband, a veteran ferry captain, turned to her and said, `This is really weird. I've never seen anything like this in all my years on the lake.

The Orioles clubhouse has a new epicenter and it goes by the name of Eddie Murray. The tremors he emits in all directions assume many different forms and magnitudes.There is the humor, of course, the verbal shock waves he'll direct at anybody, humor that leaves 20-year-old outfielder Eugene Kingsale indistinguishable from national icon Cal Ripken. Which is the point, of course -- everybody's in this together."Eddie can stir it up," said pitcher Alan Mills, smiling. "That's all I'm going to say. The man can stir it up."

While Texans don't apologize for having oil reserves and Floridians aren't bashful about their warm weather and sunshine, Marylanders are seldom caught boasting about one of the state's most impressive resources - a veritable army of people who know how to spy in cyber space. The presence of the National Security Agency in Fort Meade has long been the least-talked-about jobs engine in the state's economy for obvious reasons. It's a government agency so secretive that neither its budget nor the size of its payroll is ever officially revealed.

NEW DELHI -- The South Asian earthquake struck at the epicenter of a principal recruiting ground and logistical center for global terrorists, leveling a number of terrorist nurseries and training camps in an area that serves as the last main refuge of al-Qaida. Much of the quake's destruction occurred in the two terrorist-infested areas of northern Pakistan where Osama bin Laden may be holed up - Pakistani-held Kashmir and the North-West Frontier Province. The Oct. 8 calamity brought foreign teams and troops to that restricted region in Pakistan and gave the international community the potential leverage to steer the area away from terrorism.

TIKRIT, Iraq - Etched into the pastel plasterwork, high above the men sitting around a huge conference table, were the Arabic initials of Saddam Hussein, the man whose home this was two years ago. The cavernous room is in one of the 19 vast palaces the now-imprisoned leader built for himself in his hometown. Translating for the American general chairing the meeting was one of Hussein's former army brigadier generals. To the American's right was another of Hussein's generals, this one proudly noting that he had fought the Americans until the last day of the invasion in 2003.
