Meta media

Despite the criticism that accompanies Nielsen ratings, it’s difficult to ignore the power of numbers. Between March 22 and 28 of this year, four reality television shows were among the top 20 prime time programs of the week. Almost 17 million households had their televisions tuned to “American Idol.” That’s 17 million people who willfully […]

The ‘Cool Factor’

After Saturday’s sold-out show at the 9:30 Club, all the members of Interpol should be on that list. Forget The Strokes, forget The […]

Bar Belle: Lindy’s Red Lion

Carded: yep Cover: nope Dress: I guess so Specials: Plenty Like many GW students, my parents were in town this weekend.

Women take strides to vote

It is said that March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb, and in 1913 the lion let out a very loud roar. On March 13, 1913, more than 6,000 woman suffrage supporters marched in a parade on Pennsylvania Avenue. Since Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott organized the Seneca Falls Convention […]
