Allen J. Quille, the self-made parking lot magnate who raised millions of dollars for political campaigns and educational causes, died yesterday of pneumonia at Sinai Hospital. He was 82 and lived in the Bare Hills section of Baltimore County. Although he left school at 16, Mr. Quille became ruler of an asphalt empire from Fells Point to Pikesville as president of Quille's Parking Co. and became one of the city's leading African-American businessmen. As a fund-raiser and donor, he directed his skills -- and his wealth -- to Democratic politics at the city, state and national levels, and his political ties brought invitations to dinners at the White House during the Carter and Clinton administrations.

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. From his image, she drew strength -- for reasons someone looking at her might never have imagined.As a successful African-American earning her third degree at U.Va., Cooley had made a natural choice for her Ph.D. thesis: She had probed the factors responsible for black students' success.

The Karzai family has a name for the restaurant they're developing at The Chesapeake, the gateway property at 1700 North Charles Street. The restaurant will be called Pen & Quill, according to owner Helmand Karzai. Pen and Quill, Karzai said, was the name of the cocktail lounge within the old Chesapeake Restaurant, which flourished on the corner of Charles and Lanvale streets during the 1950s and the 1960s.  The forthcoming restaurant also has its executive chef, Karzai said.

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.

An autopsy on Terri Schiavo found that she had massive, irreversible brain damage, a Florida medical examiner's office said yesterday in a report that gave scientific support to her husband's decision to withdraw her feeding tube. But for Schiavo's parents and others, the findings didn't end the ethical or medical debate that eventually drew in Congress and the White House. Bob and Mary Schindler still say that their daughter would not have wanted her life ended and that she was not in a persistent vegetative state, their lawyer, David Gibbs III, said.
