On a clear night last spring in Afghanistan's eastern mountains, a U.S. infantry platoon went looking for an al-Qaida operative named Habib Jan, and they found him. Outside an abandoned village clinging to a rocky hillside, the platoon was ambushed in a rain of deadly rifle and machine gun fire. Twenty-seven Americans and five Afghan Army fighters together fought 90 or 100 of Habib Jan's Islamist extremists. For 17 hours, the American platoon was pinned down. Bullets snapped and hissed as the enemy slowly closed in. Ammunition ran low. Water ran out. Sniper rounds plucked at the soldiers' helmets and sleeves and drilled through boots as they shifted and returned fire.

Every few days, Phil McQuade's cell phone rings, and an eager caller asks: "When, already, will your free Internet service be available at my house?" He isn't sure, he tells them. Maybe soon, maybe never. More than a year after McQuade joined state and local officials to celebrate his intention to blanket Maryland's capital with a free citywide wireless network, his company has barely managed to cover the downtown area. Although McQuade is bucking one industry trend by actually making money, the promise of free, advertising-supported Internet service all over the city might be dead.

Joanne A. McQuade, a former aide who saved Mayor William Donald Schaefer from a would-be assassin's bullet during a 1976 shooting rampage, died Sunday of breast cancer at Mercy Medical Center. She was 61. At the time of the shooting, the longtime resident of the city's Hunting Ridge section was a 37-year-old office manager working with Schaefer in temporary rented offices at 26 S. Calvert St. during the renovation of City Hall. On April 13, 1976, Charles A. Hopkins, owner of an East Baltimore carryout shop, entered the temporary City Hall carrying a .38-caliber revolver in a paper bag and headed for the mayor's seventh-floor office.

A QUARTER- century after the madness, we said goodbye last week to brave Joanne McQuade, who once saved the life of a mayor named Schaefer. But everybody missed that kid standing silently in a criminal courtroom a few weeks ago, his head bent, his shoulders sagging, whose name was Dominic Leone III. Each carried some of the same dust of history. It was Joanne McQuade who gently coaxed Charles A. Hopkins and his gun away from William Donald Schaefer. Hopkins, out of his mind with rage, needed to kill somebody that April day in 1976.

NEW YORK -- The diary is a 70-sheet spiral notebook with candy wrappers and a used pair of chopsticks taped inside. A picture of Donna Summer is glued to its cover next to a scratch-and-sniff pizza sticker that - after 27 years - still smells like pepperoni. Its cursive-scrawled pages hold Becky Ciletti's most intimate pubescent thoughts and secrets. The 39-year-old freelance magazine writer came to this bar on a rainy April night to read the mostly embarrassing excerpts - food-fighting, French-kissing, babe-loving and all - to nearly 100 strangers.

Like many small businesses with big dreams, Annapolis Wireless Internet runs out of a tiny office in a nondescript building. One room, two desks, tucked behind a boat dock. It's not even listed in the building's directory. But tomorrow, the two 30-something entrepreneurs who occupy those desks will get some big exposure: an official unveiling of their vision at City Dock with Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. and city officials on hand. Victor DeLeon and Philip McQuade plan by the end of next year to complete a wireless network covering 10 square miles in Annapolis that will be totally free - no taxes, no user fees.

Someone hollered, "There might be a sniper out there," and everybody crouched low to the floor.
