Stories from the September 18, 2000 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Spotlight – Silent, lonely and modest he sits alone

Across the street from the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial on Constitution Avenue, a quirky, perplexing genius lounges on a white granite bench. In the yard of the National Academy of Sciences, this character is holding a paper that contains complex mathematical equations, such as the theory of relativity and the photoelectric effect. It is easy to […]

No parking any time?

Parking. In a major city it certainly has a different connotation than almost anywhere else. That perfectly-located spot down the street is like a mirage off in the distance, but the aggressive driver still guns the engine to reach it before anyone can claim it as their own. The driver speeds to that empty space […]

Column – Cola Wars come to campus

When will Coca-Cola’s tyranny over GW end? All I see these days is the red cup glaring like a communist banner. There seems to be some revisionist history at work: a year ago, it was the faux-iced over Pepsi cup – albeit in a cooler blue – that dominated the GW landscape. Yet today, it […]

New albums help to define the burgeoning sound of tech-house

In the mid-90s, a new sound was slowly developing in electronic music. Partially in response to a considered dumbing-down of techno, artists started to create a new sound.

However, I was greatly disturbed by a quote in the article. One of the students said, Because I’m Jewish, […]

Staff editorial – Commercial competition

The Olympic Games. Few gatherings in history hold the same extraordinary power over so many people. Worldwide, the modern Olympics are one of the most watched, most attended, most dissected series of events; and they are reborn in a different city every four years. The modern games are a contemporary attempt to recapture the idealism […]

Nader needed in debates

In recent editions of The Hatchet, the College Democrats and College Republicans have faced off on important issues in the upcoming elections. There is one problem. We still have more than six weeks until the elections. If the current pace of one debate a week continues, before October, there will be no issues left to […]

Gore speaks at Howard University

About 100 GW College Democrats visited Howard University to listen to Democratic presidential nominee Al Gore address a packed auditorium Friday. The event wrapped up Gore’s weeklong campaign trip promoting his education platform. Students said they enjoyed Gore’s uncharacteristically energetic and humorous speech, which followed his guest appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman […]
