Letter to the Editor

Bad mathematics A proposal to slash the size of the George Washington University Law School by one quarter has been shelved after it was discovered that the committee which proposed the shrinkage underestimated the resulting revenue loss by some $5 million.

Unanswered questions

Washington is awash in a flood of innuendo, guesses and lies. While everyone seems to be forming an opinion as to what the facts are, only a handful of people actually know what transpired behind closed doors. One of them, former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, is in the process of negotiating possible immunity for […]

Shrinking GWorld

The GWorld card program was initiated with much fanfare at the start of this school year.

The Clinton-intern scandal and my addiction to football

Damn it! I knew there was a reason why I got turned down for that White House internship! Man, I just knew I should have brought a tape recorder with me. Just think how much that tape (or any tape, really) would be worth coming out of the White House right now. I’ve been watching […]

National Gallery of Art honors M.C. Escher

Patterns dissolve as cubes turn to birds and a chess game becomes the coast of Amalfi. The banner spanning the main entrance of the M.C. Escher exhibit gives fair warning for the art that follows. The National Gallery of Art has assembled a collection of 85 pieces of Escher’s work. “A Centennial Tribute” commemorates the […]

SA pushes for more eateries on GWorld

The University soon will begin the GWorld Card program’s Phase II which will enable students to use debit points at vending and laundry machines. But some student leaders said they are wary of the University’s ability to implement the program effectively since problems in the current system have not been solved. With only one off-campus […]

Asian crisis shows need for reforms

Only a few months ago, economists, businessmen, politicians and journalists were singing the praises of a “miracle economy” and then almost out of nowhere … wham! The Asian “miracle” economics went into a downward spiral that had ripple effects around the world, from India to Brazil to Russia, Europe and the United States. In October, […]

GW soars to 17-3 with road wins

The GW men’s basketball team went on the road this weekend and continued amassing wins, topping Fordham Thursday and Duquesne Saturday.

Mescheriakov still is sidelined […]
