A talk with an old love interest

Okay kiddies, I have given you, my faithful readers, several columns in which I have poured out my heart and soul, recounting a history of my foiled love attempts. This column will be no different, I shall tell you all about yet another relationship that crashed and burned long before it ever took off. Back […]

Kappa Smacka Slut president gets profound

Running around organizing her sorority isn’t easy on senior Kandy Hertzblaum. Especially in three-inch heels. But Hertzblaum braves blisters and bad hair days. As president and founder of Kappa Smacka Slut, she can barely catch her breath, let alone take a day off (even when D.C.’s intense humidity threatens to frizz her mane). “As the […]

Heat threatens to shut down campus computers

Air conditioning in campus buildings lumbered into operation Tuesday as campus computers came dangerously close to shutting down from the heat and students complained to University administrators about the unseasonably warm weather. Mike Briggs, a systems specialist at the law school, said the school’s mainframe computer came within five degrees of overheating Tuesday afternoon. “There […]

My attempt at Mideast understanding

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 […]
