Richard Tom Bolan, a social worker and civil rights lawyer who championed the causes of wheelchair users and the elderly, died Saturday of esophageal cancer at Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care in Towson. He was 52 and lived in Roland Park. The 1979 case involving Thomas J. Turner, a paraplegic, who was arrested and deemed a "fire hazard" for blocking a ramp at Memorial Stadium with his wheelchair during an Orioles game sparked Mr. Bolan's activism. As counsel to Mr. Turner and Disabled in Action in Baltimore, a national organization that seeks to end discrimination against people with disabilities, Mr. Bolan succeeded in getting the charges against Mr. Turner dismissed on appeal.

GO ON A pub crawl with a bunch of visiting home-brewers and you are in for a spirited night. I found this out last week as I tried to keep pace with a small group of the 700 conventioneers in town for the National Homebrewers Conference. Setting out from the downtown Holiday Inn, a group of about 30 visiting home-brewers hiked to Sean Bolan's in Federal Hill, Capitol City Brewing Company in Harborplace, the Wharf Rat on Pratt Street and Max's at Camden Yards. I faded at 10:30 p.m. after three stops.

Even the regulars thought that Sean Bolan's at 1236 S. Light St. would be serving wings and burgers when the pub opened its dining room a couple of weeks ago, says owner Ken Krucenski. Instead, the kitchen produces five Irish specialties: fish and chips, shepherd's pie, Irish stew, bangers and mash (sausage and mashed potatoes) and seafood chowder, each for $8.95. On Friday nights, things get a little fancier, with specials like salmon with a toasted walnut and dill sauce for $13.95. Sean Bolan's specializes in high-end beers, with 17 drafts on tap. The dining room is open for dinner only Monday through Friday, for lunch and dinner Saturday, and is closed Sunday.

Saturday's chocolate festival at the Bel Air National Guard Armory will provide a sweet topping for the Downtown Revitalization Alliance's efforts to keep Main Street vibrant. The festival is one of many programs the alliance has organized to improve and bring businesses to downtown Bel Air, and those efforts are paying off in four recent start-ups: Sean Bolan's Irish Pub and Restaurant, Main Street Cigar Co., Carried Away Gourmet and Prime Time Jewelry. And these projects aren't all that the alliance has in store.

Forget about the Mitsubishi Montero ad and that preposterous Ragu spot. The fact that cable's TNT used "Bang a Gong" during the NBA playoffs. And all the movie soundtrack appearances: Moulin Rouge, The Truman Show, Velvet Goldmine and Billy Elliot, which featured five T. Rex tunes. Even without all that, we're having a T. Rex moment. The English band of the 1970s, led by singer and songwriter Marc Bolan, had exactly one U.S. Top 10 hit ("Bang a Gong" - or "Get It On" as it was known everywhere else)

Bangers. Mash. Champ. Sounds more like something you'd read in Sports Illustrated than on a menu. But all of these are right there on the menu of Sean Bolan's Irish Pub and Restaurant in Federal Hill. And each one packs a better punch than Mike Tyson could ever deliver. Bangers in British Isles parlance are sausages. Mash is mashed potatoes, and champ is what the Irish call mash. At Sean Bolan's, the bangers are superb, mild, cigar-sized sausages boiled for several hours with onions and pickling spices before going on the grill.

Baltimore should consider subsidizing new downtown office buildings in much the same way it is assisting development of hotels such as the $134 million Wyndham International Inner Harbor East, according to a consultant's study conducted for the city.The study, by Bolan Smart Associates of Washington, contends that, because the downtown has "generally limited growth in net demand," subsidies or property tax breaks should be provided to spur construction of new Class A office space.Specifically, the city's economic development agency should consider "payment-in-lieu-of-taxes" programs to stimulate new development, or risk losing key businesses.

W. R. Grace & Co., VerticalNet Inc. and Aspen Technology Inc. announced a business-to-business venture yesterday that will allow industrial customers such as oil refineries and plastics companies to purchase chemical catalysts online. e-Catalysts Inc., which the companies introduced yesterday at a National Petrochemical & Refiners Association conference in San Francisco, is the latest in a retinue of B2B exchanges that traditional companies are launching to stimulate sales online. The Internet offers marketplaces for commodities such as steel, plastics and biomedical supplies.

As state lawmakers groped their way to last week's passage of a far-reaching bill on computer software licensing, Montgomery County Del. Peter Franchot predicted that "Maryland is poised to become the e-commerce capital of the world." But don't look for big software companies to move here just because of the new legislation -- especially when the measure's merits are disputed. "They've been sold a bill of goods that this will bring jobs," said Skip Lockwood, director of 4CITE, a Washington-based coalition of business and nonprofit groups opposed to the legislation.
