Proposal could give Barry teaching post

Friends and supporters of D.C. Mayor Marion Barry (D) have established a fund to urge him to accept a visiting professorship with the consortium of universities in the metropolitan area, The Washington Post reported Sunday. But GW President Stephen Joel Trachtenberg said GW does not have enough information to make a decision about whether it […]

Injustices proof of no God

(U-WIRE) LINCOLN, Neb. – When I was a young German (just picture me running through the Black Forest in my Lederhosen), I went to church just because it was what everybody did. Back then I made a list of questions I wanted to ask God if he ever appeared to me, as he did to […]

Testesbulg debuts as insane drunk

In what GW President Steven Testesbulg said was his acting debut, he admitted last week to playing Buddy Black, the alcoholic father, in John Formulaic Girsham’s The Rainmaker. “It really wasn’t that difficult,” Testesbulg said of his part. “I just replaced the Hollywood rum with some D.C. `water’ and ran with it.” Students were unaware […]

Jarofurine’s bald head center of controversy at GW

GW men’s basketball coach Ike Jarofurine has turned down head coaching offers from more than 200 Division I schools in order to pursue another job, president of the Hair Club for Men. “I think my smooth, shiny dome is the kind of look the company wants to push,” Jarofurine said while carefully polishing his head […]

Hollywood focuseson SEX, not love

Everybody always wants to know who is in love with who in Hollywood. Let’s face it, there’s no such thing as love in Hollywood. It’s pure sex. So let’s talk about who is fucking who. At the premier for the re-release of Grease, Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta couldn’t keep their hands off each other. […]

Screw the Ellipse!!!

We were wrong. Plain and simple. For months we railed against the University’s proposal to move Commencement from the Ellipse to the MCI Center. They listened and decided to keep it where it was. But now we realize we made a mistake. Commencement should be held at the MCI Center. It is the best location […]

Elliott dean welcomes student input

As dean of the Elliott School of International Affairs, I was most interested in the article about our undergraduate programs that appeared in your edition Thursday, March 26 (The GW Hatchet, “ESIA urged to extend curriculum,” p.1). The opinions of the students interviewed in the article were very timely and most welcome. We have recently […]

Grease returns to theaters for 20th anniversary

Mickey and Minnie. Romeo and Juliet. Lucy and Desi. Bonnie and Clyde. Few other couples are known by both grandparents and grandchildren. But Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) and Danny (John Travolta) span the generation gap. Young and old love the story of Rydell High Class of 1978. When it debuted in 1978, Grease (Paramount Pictures) grossed […]

Important event happens at GW

Something happened on campus today, according to people who were there. “Something happened,” one source said. “Uh, yeah,” another source said. “It was something big.” No one at the scene could confirm exactly what happened, but one University administrator, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said he expects the event will both cost a […]
