Stories from the January 25, 2001 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Public prayers allowed

While we are certainly right to be zealous in our protection of the separation of church and state, the editorial in last Monday’s Hatchet, “Disunion of Faith,” was particularly bizarre in its paranoid tone and anti-religious bias. Clearly, The Hatchet does not have a firm grasp of the reality of the relationship between the American […]

Pledging social responsibility

“I pledge to explore and take into account the social and environmental consequences of any job I consider and will try to improve these aspects of any organization for which I work.” Thousands of graduating seniors at more than 50 colleges nationwide are taking a pledge to consider the social and environmental aspects of their […]

Bush’s abortion debacle

Amid the pomp and parading of the George W. Bush inauguration, Republicans wondered how it was possible for anyone to protest the new president. However, by the end of Bush’s first full day of office, we learned that we could not begin the protests early enough. As one of its first decisions, the Bush administration […]

I know that I […]

Staff Editorial: Catastrophic cuts

While these measures do not alter the availability of abortions and other family planning services in this country, Bush’s deceitful actions are dangerous and […]

MPA building opens Monday

All classes re-scheduled to meet in the new Media and Public Affairs building Monday will move in as planned, GW officials said. “Word has gone out to faculty, all classes that were held in Hillel and the Marvin Center and 2020 K Street, their rooms will be ready,” said Craig Linebaugh, associate vice president for […]

GW study reviews internet, politics

More than 35 percent of Americans used the internet to get news and information about the 2000 election, according to the latest study conducted by the Democracy Online Project, a study administered by the GW Graduate School of Political Management. Created last October with a grant from the Pew Charitable Trusts, the Democracy Online Project […]
