To solve the problems in Kosovo, go after their cause – Milosevic

As of this writing, NATO is continuing with Operation Allied Force even though Serbia’s offensive against Kosovar Albanians is seemingly unaffected. It is obvious to observers across the political spectrum, expect the president, that the air war as it is being fought will not achieve any meaningful results. It will not save the Kosovars from […]

“Potter vows persistent advocacy” was the title of an article that ran a little more than a year ago in The GW Hatchet. I am often reminded of a quote from this article: “But Potter says her biggest task if she is elected will not be to introduce revolutionary new programs or induce monumental changes […]

Foreign lands: Some GW sports are played too far away

After serving as The GW Hatchet’s sports editor for two years, I’ll be moving on and trying to let go.
