Letter to the Editor: Rave reality

I was originally excited to see the article “Driving a subculture” (p. 10) in the Jan. 16 issue of The Hatchet. I was expecting a student newspaper to do a superior job in describing the rave culture compared to what the national media has been able to do up to this point. Yet I was […]

Super Bowl Predictions

It’s either the Baltimore Ravens or the New York Giants. So does that mean that either Trent Dilfer or Kerry Collins will be leading their team to Disney World as Super Bowl champions? Well, not necessarily. In this game all coaches are probably asking of their QBs to make fewer mistakes than their opponent. The […]

Column: Betting it all on gambling reform

Nevada is universally recognized as the gambling capital of the world, a desert oasis where nearly anything goes. Not too far outside Las Vegas, which boasts more than half the world’s largest hotels each replete with casinos that do billions of dollars in business each year, even prostitution is legal. Another nearly universally recognized taboo […]

Swimming teams finish third, Fortuny places first

Alvaro Fortuny continued his dominance by winning the 100-yard breaststroke (:58.44) in Saturday’s tri-meet with Massachusetts and the University of Maryland-Baltimore County; but the GW men’s and women’s swimming teams finished behind their two opponents. Fortuny finished second in the 200-yard breaststroke event. Other strong finishes for GW included Jeremy Hoders’ first-place finish in the […]

Pledge creates bitter rift

As the holiday movie season sputters out, a new set of films are making their bid for box-office dollars. The Pledge (Warner Bros.), which opened Friday, received both widespread acclaim and open disdain from critics and moviegoers alike. The Pledge marks the second time Jack Nicholson (As Good as it Gets) and sometimes-director Sean Penn […]

“Brown gets zero respect from the officials,” Penders says

NEW YORK – GW’s contest with Fordham at Madison Square Garden saw the Rams go to the free-throw line nine more times than the Colonials Saturday afternoon. The Rams converted 22 of 32 attempts while the Colonials sunk 17 of 23. Against Xavier Tuesday night, GW was called for 19 more fouls, contributing to a […]

Women plow through UMass, Fordham; 6-0 in A-10

The GW women’s basketball team remains undefeated in the Atlantic 10 and continues to plow past opponents no matter the circumstance. This weekend, the Colonials (12-6, 6-0 A-10) headed north for a two-game road trip against Massachusetts and struggling Fordham, winning both contests by 28 points. Erica Lawrence, Kristeena Alexander and Lindsey Davidson led the […]

Colonials keep close, can’t find a way

NEW YORK – The GW men’s basketball team entered Saturday’s match-up against Fordham in the world’s most famous basketball arena, Madison Square Garden, looking to rebound from last week’s difficult home loss to the Xavier. Unfortunately for the Colonials, past problems resurfaced in another hotly contested Atlantic 10 affair as the Colonials fell to the […]

Staff Editorial: Disunion of faith

President George W. Bush touted Saturday’s inauguration as the introduction of a new era of unity and civility. But unity and civility were sacrificed on the altar of right-wing Christian fundamentalism to create a feeling of exclusion and alienation among many of the nation’s citizens. The ceremony began innocuously enough with the introduction of the […]
