Ella Thompson, whose tireless efforts to bring hope to a drug-infested West Baltimore neighborhood made her a heroine of the book "The Corner," died of a heart attack yesterday while picking up computers donated for a city recreation center. She was 47."She saw the possibilities in everybody," said David Simon, co-author of the 1997 book that portrayed the battered realities of her neighborhood.
