Susan C. Schwab, who stepped down in the spring as dean of the University of Maryland's School of Public Affairs to accept a high position in the Bush administration, has given up on the political job and won't be returning quickly to a leadership role at the University of Maryland. If she wants her job as dean back, she will have to go through the application process again, a university spokesman said yesterday. "We've reached the point now where we're in the process of looking for a new dean," said George Cathcart, the spokesman for the University of Maryland.

Kevin Cathcart is among a very select group of Americans: those who have witnessed their U.S. Supreme Court justices contemplating sodomy -- not once but twice. He was there in 1986 when oral arguments led to a ruling that upheld sodomy laws, a devastating blow to the then-nascent American gay rights movement. And he was there again last spring for arguments that set the stage for the movement's greatest judicial victory on June 26 -- the high court's reversal of its own earlier ruling.

COLLEGE PARK -- On the gray drizzly morning after Maryland's semifinal NCAA basketball victory, smashed-in windows and boarded-up doors competed for attention at a busy campus crossroads with banners and flags showing the school's fierce turtle mascot. In the few open stores, students fresh from spring break and in a celebratory mood plunked down cash for anything red and reptilian -- even as they expressed embarrassment over their fellow fans' riotous behavior the night before. Shortly after midnight, about an hour after a nail-biter of a game in which the Terps beat the Kansas Jayhawks, 97-88, a good-natured, cheering crowd of about 500 revelers turned into the ugly mob that police had feared.
