Stories from the February 10, 2000 issue of the GW Hatchet.

A nightmare reviewed — Staff Editorial

Illinois Gov. George Ryan showed uncommon political courage when he issued a moratorium on the death penalty in his state because of its horrendous record of wrongfully imposing capital punishment. Since 1977, when the death penalty was reinstated in Illinois, 12 people have been executed, while 13 others have been exonerated. The faults lie among […]

Africana exhibit debuts at Gelman Library

Westward ho! — staff editorial

GW’s purchase of about a quarter of the Columbia Plaza apartment complex, while a compromise with Foggy Bottom residents, entails extra responsibility on the University’s part to its students.

Quote of the Week

Jon Stewart had some comments on what parents think when their children have left the roost: I think as you get older, you cherish the moments when there are not children around. You never realize it, but your parents are dirty, filthy people just like you are, and people like to show that side of […]
