Stories from the November 20, 2000 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Staff editorial: Fried faux pas

Metro police arrested 12-year-old Ansche Hedgepeth for eating French fries in the Tenleytown Metro station last month. Officers handcuffed the child and searched her bag for drugs and alcohol. Although Metro Transit Police has the right intentions – to keep the transit system clean by enforcing the law – its treatment of Hedgepeth illustrates that […]

Election depends on honesty

At about 10 p.m. on election night, when Florida was taken out of the Gore fold and returned to the netherworld of the too close to call states, my heart sank. Being Irish-Catholic and a Democrat, a cocktail which often generates a potent sense of pessimism, I knew it was over. Still, I suffered in […]

Staff editorial: Moot mail

In a presidential election with only several hundred votes separating the winner and the loser, every vote counts. But several GW students were disenfranchised this election season – not by their states or by failing to comply with complicated absentee requirements, but by absurdly slow mail delivery to campus residence halls. Students in residence halls […]

Crew posts best finish ever

Crew posts best finishes ever at Princeton The men’s and women’s novice crew teams closed out their fall racing season with strong performances last weekend at the Belly of the Carnegie in Princeton, N.J. In the women’s open eight event, GW `A’ finished fifth with a time of 16:33.30 while the GW `B’ squad came […]

Hatchet editorial misses the mark

For instance, contrary to the implication that the appeal was filed even though construction . is already underway, the appeal was filed in October 1999, […]

Reel Big Fish goes belly-up at 9:30 Club

Does anyone remember that week when ska was cool? Ska is often dismissed as a phase in mainstream music that came and went years ago. This was a relief to many longtime ska fans who felt the genre had become too commercial and watered down by popular bands such as The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Many […]

Men dominate Texas A&M in home opener

Foul trouble held last year’s leading GW scorer SirValiant Brown to a career-low nine shots Saturday night, but the Colonials proved in their 94-74 thumping of visiting Texas A&M University that they have the offensive weapons to score without Brown’s presence on the court. GW’s most valuable weapon in the regular season opener at the […]

GW wins despite foul calls

Officials called 54 fouls in GW’s 94-74 win over the Texas A&M University Saturday night at the Smith Center. Nearly 30 percent (46 points) of the game’s 168 points were made at the foul line. It was a funny game with all the whistles, GW head coach Tom Penders said. It was a parade to […]
