Some people haven't the patience to thread a needle, le alone spend hours wrapping thin strips of paper around one.But 71-year-old Kathryn "Iris" Kortisses has been doing it for years, and says she finds the art of quilling "quite thrilling.""And does time fly by when you are doing it," said Mrs. Kortisses, a member of the Matinees Homemakers' Club. "You sit down to work, and the next thing you know a couple of hours have flown by."Quilling was used by 17th-century nuns to decorate their Bibles.

It was judgment day at the University of Virginia. Michele Cooley, preparing to defend her dissertation before a panel of professors, glanced at the bust of Thomas Jefferson in the school's historic Rotunda.

Almost from the start, Tim Quill was drawn to the dying, to the final days of life that can be so rich with meaning and so dark with suffering. Almost from the start, as a young medical student, he embraced the patients other doctors tried to avoid.For Quill, death wasn't a defeat or repudiation of his skills as a doctor. Like birth, death was a journey. And over the course of two decades in medicine, Quill has come to see himself as a midwife to the process."The promise we make to our dying patients should have three parts," he says.

For gay men coming of age in the 1960s and 1970s, especially those growing up in rural areas or suburban enclaves, there were few gay role models. Television and film offered little beyond the stereotypes of hairdressers and designers. What positive role models did exist were writers who could be labeled as gay or whose work could be detected as gay-themed: Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote, James Baldwin, Gore Vidal and William Burroughs are well-known examples. But while gay men were sometimes fully realized characters in their books and plays, they were still depicted as social outcasts, victims or doomed martyrs.

Earlier this month, a spirited crowd of Baltimore County officials and others gathered on Pennsylvania Avenue in Towson to participate with owners Rick Bielski and Eric and Melanie Wagner in the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Charles Village Pub, which will replace the original popular watering hole that burned in January. Its rebirth is good news for its clientele, made up of the college-age crowd, businessmen and other hangers-on in search of some refreshment at the end of the working day. The Towson bar scene was pretty stable for years with reliable places like Souris, rumored to have been the first establishment in Baltimore County to receive a liquor license after the repeal of Prohibition.
