Stories from the March 30, 2000 issue of the GW Hatchet.

The Christian right and religious freedom

Rally ’round the pole, a moment of silence, a quick Hail Mary before the big game – where will the line be drawn, and when is it all going to stop? Our country was founded on the basis that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. […]

D.C. Diary: Remembering in pieces

March 29, 2000 American University Bender Arena 4:40 p.m. It was hard to tell if the 30 or so people in American University’s Bender Arena were feeling the same thing I was. Overwhelmed was how I felt, taking in the sight of panel upon panel (672 at AU alone) of a quilt dedicated to loved […]

Shabby computer labs

The computer labs on campus are in shambles. I switched machines three times before I found one that was working well enough for me to use (this is all too common an experience). That’s not to mention the fact that every time I switched machines I had to wait in line to get another machine. […]

Jackson, who came into the national spotlight playing Pacey on Dawson’s Creek, is awaiting the release of […]

Article overlooks sorority experience

I must express my disappointment, and that of the entire Panhellenic Executive Board at being eliminated from the article regarding Greek-letter life at GW (Discovering the `moment,’ March 30, p. 1). As sorority members, we strongly believe that our Greek-letter experience and moments are equally as important as those of the fraternities. GW has enjoyed […]

Waking the Dead makes lasting impact on audiences

How many films have you seen in last few months? Now, out of those films, how many do you remember? What was the name of the lead character? Exactly – you can’t remember. But, Waking the Dead (USA Films) breaks that trend, and you will remember the film well past the ride home. Based on […]
