Political power comes from violence

At the Web site dedicated to the memory of Officer Daniel Faulkner, the Philadelphia policeman murdered by Mumia Abu-Jamal, you will find a variety of facts supporting the case of the prosecution, as well as a variety of facts rebutting the case of the defense. But the most interesting guilt that is heaped upon Abu-Jamal […]

Generic Theatre performs lackluster `Romeo and Juliet’

Generic Theatre’s production of “Romeo and Juliet” has a lot of potential. Michael Weitz is a talented director. The cast members are accredited performers. It is written by one of the greatest playwrights of all time. But in its rehearsals, Generic Theatre delivers a lackluster version. With a week of rehearsal left, Generic has a […]

Behind all of the sound and fury, there were lots of good times

So the end has finally come. After three years of adopting The Hatchet as my home-away-from-dorm room-away-from-home, it’s time to leave all this to a new crop of kids.

Managing, living, learning

My last piece for The Hatchet, and I wish I had something meaningful to say. I don’t. I wish had glorious insights that would resonate with readers. And years later, they’d quote me to their friends mingling over cocktails at dinner parties, wondering where they procured such brilliance. I wish I could mold this last […]

At age 18, Cameron Schiller has created a mini-empire. He has found a niche in the D.C. metropolitan area and at GW for a craze that is sweeping the nation – Tae Bo, a form of martial arts and boxing made famous by martial artist Billy Blanks.

Spring Fling goes to the `X-treme’

The skies were clear and the sun was shining this year over Program Board’s “X-treme Spring Fling” on the Quad as students were treated to live music, free food and games. “Spring Fling is a totally free event put on by the Program Board for the students,” said PB Parties Chair Shreema Sanghvi. “It is […]
