Stories from the March 25, 1999 issue of the GW Hatchet.

“Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.” These words apply as well to the student candidates running for office at GW in 1999 as they did to Sir Walter Scott in England in 1808. Picture if you will a paid advertisement for a Student Association presidential candidate with a […]

He is a convicted child molester who was paroled after spending five years in prison. The issue of child molestation may not seem an integral part of a college community, but […]

Hidden treasure – Staff editorial

Sholl’s Colonial Cafeteria has been a Washington landmark for more than 70 years. Its clientele has included everyone from members of Congress to members of the underclass. It serves up pie and chicken and a lot more – area residents are as loyal to the local cafeteria as Seinfeld and his friends were to Monk’s. […]

Like a bad dream – Staff editorial

The end is finally in sight. Hallelujah! If you have been paying any sort of attention to campus goings-on (and if you care), you know the protracted election season will finally end Thursday.
