A permanent solution to the Saddam problem

The brewing crisis in the Gulf, the byproduct of the failure of the Bush Administration to liberate Iraq as well as Kuwait, could be the defining moment of the Clinton presidency. More important than fund-raising scandals, sexual harassment allegations and Whitewater, Clinton’s true legacy, which in the area of foreign policy has in the past […]

Pollin’s palace

Lately, the MCI Center has been at the fore of GW students’ minds. The question of where Commencement will be held continues to frustrate and worry students. Our views about Commencement are still the same – the Ellipse tradition should continue. But we too can appreciate the importance of the new MCI Center to the […]

College students can add another to the list: yearly increases in college costs above inflation levels. Tomorrow, University officials will devote a couple of hours of their […]
