Stories from the October 5, 2000 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Staff editorial – Speed up the system

Long lines mean long waits, and nowhere on campus is this statement more true than at J Street, GW’s main eatery. University Dining Services administrators insist that changes are being made to improve students’ experience at J Street. Those changes, if any were made, have been largely ineffectual. Lines still stretch into walk areas. Wait […]

Lefty puts music back in its right mind

In today’s world of prefabricated pop and generic rock it is difficult to find a band whose sound is truly original. Though it has been buried in recent years, a strong rock scene still exists in the shadows of popular music. Lefty, a group of California rockers who play the 9:30 Club tonight, hopes to […]

Forum: Drug will have little affect on abortion

Last week, the FDA approved the controversial abortion drug RU-486 for use in the United States.

‘Crossfire’ ignites students

Show hosts Robert Novak, Mary Matalin and Press discussed […]
