CHICAGO -- Oldsmobile will drop its midsize Toronado luxury coupe and full-size Custom Cruiser station wagon after 1992, the first evidence that General Motors Corp. is about to whittle down its product offerings in order to cut costs and regain profitability for its North American operations.Earlier this week GM announced it earned a scant $179 million in the first quarter of this year. Though that was GM's first profit in six quarters, the company said its North American operations were still losing money, with estimates of $1 billion or more for the quarter, and that consolidation and cost-cutting would be accelerated.

SOMETIMES the slightest civility feels like a luxury. Richard Frye steps into an early-morning wind that shivers the bones. But he knows he can go back inside for warmth and counts this a blessing. There's an apartment at the top of the stairs where he can sleep, instead of the back seat of a car where he says he lived for two years. He spends most of his time in the apartment. Frye, 52, doesn't work anymore. He's struggling with AIDS, though it isn't AIDS that keeps him out of work. He says he couldn't find simple civility on the job. He says years of gay-baiting by fellow workers drove him from a couple of Howard County positions, drove him into clinical depression and drove him into isolation.
