Stories from the September 28, 2000 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Containing conflict

One of the clearest arguments in for favor of intervention was spoken nearly sixty years ago by a Haitian diplomat at the League of Nations in 1935. He said, All nations of the world, big or small, weak or mighty, we must act now or one day we will be somebody’s Ethiopia. Very simply it […]

Fashion faux pas or sartorial elegance?

I know you’re out there you ultra-liberal fashion critics. I hear your comments on how snobby GW has become, and what a shame it is. But let’s get serious; there’s more to campus style than dark jeans and a matching jean jacket with a Harve Chapelier sac or a Prada bag. As one of the […]

Great coverage

Thank you for your wonderfully written article on DC Reads in the Sept 14 issue (p. 6). The positive reaction generated by the article can only help our cause. Recognition of our work encourages the tutors who are already in the program, students interested in the program and the people who are supporting our program […]

Burt should back off PB

Perhaps there is no Student Association issue that affects more students than the allocation of student group funds. While I congratulate SA President David Burt for getting more funds from the University, I am disheartened to see that he has decided to hoard all the money rather than giving it to the people who deserve […]

Staff editorial: Tarnished gold

The work of a lifetime can be destroyed by a single act. Romanian gymnast Andreea Raducan certainly understands this concept in light of recent events. Her Olympic gold medal was stripped from her for using pseudo-ephedrine, a banned substance found in cold medicine that works like adrenaline to make the heart beat faster. Raducan claims […]

GW men’s soccer on the attack

GW men’s soccer coach George Lidster said he likes his team to attack. In seven games, the Colonials have been given 18 yellow cards, scored 12 goals and have not been shutout. I’m very happy when we don’t back down, said Lidster, who was carded in last week’s match against George Mason. In GW’s most […]

Staff editorial: Dollars and sense?

The Student Association’s new structure for funding student groups, which entails more SA-controlled co-sponsorships, might alleviate the problem of unspent funds and unwisely spent allocations, but the SA should be wary that it does not take too much control over student group funding. This year, the SA managed to get $57,000 more from the administration […]

Barenaked Ladies tread water on latest release

The Barenaked Ladies’ latest album, Maroon, brings together the whimsical and the gloomy. This forms the manic-depressive style that the Ladies are famous for. This style, however, comes off dry by this, their fifth album. While Maroon is consistent with the band’s signature style, it lacks innovation. The singles Pinch Me and Falling For The […]

Get Up Kids defines emo genre

It is hard to label many modern music groups with a particular style because they blend musical styles to form their own unique sound. There are rap-metal groups, pop-punk groups and a host of other genres out there. With all these blended sounds, bands can often form outfits having many different stylistic influences and tastes. […]
