Bush, Cheney honor veterans at GW

President George W. Bush and Vice President Richard Cheney joined a host of dignitaries in honoring U.S. veterans at the Smith Center Friday. The event, one of the first in the inauguration celebration, was moved from the D.C. Stadium Armory to GW because the Inaugural Committee needed a larger venue, said Gretchen King, director of […]

Seeking common ground

More than 50 years after the last battle of WWII, thousands of veterans find themselves in a new battle.

I have been quite happy to see the recent trend in Hatchet articles that have explored the electronic music subculture. However, this most recent article (“Driving a subculture,” Jan. 16, p. 10) strikes me as rather outdated. First of all, it was almost ten years ago when acid house, Chicago house and techno were the […]

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 […]
