Volume 97, Issue 42

Stories from the February 8, 2001 issue of the GW Hatchet.


Reviewing religion I read The Hatchet’s review of Left Behind with a great deal of amusement. Given the amount of grassroots hype the movie has enjoyed based on the popular book series, I am surprised you think the movie was deceptive in becoming a forum for religious ideology. Of course it was propaganda. This movie […]

Staff editorial: Staying safe

Two armed robberies, an attempted snatch-and-grab theft and a fugitive arrest just off campus, Wednesday’s shooting outside the White House and two murders at a local university. These events should compel GW students to be more guarded about their safety on and around campus. Most of GW’s security concerns lie at the periphery of campus, […]

Hatchet shows anti-protest bias

Your articles on the protests at George W. Bush’s inauguration and Dick Cheney’s recent appearance and the subsequent letters printed on your editorial page were a disgrace to both college journalism and the romantic ideal of the questioning university student. As a journalism major and a campus activist, I find it sad that the New […]

Forum: Still too many unanswered questions

As a concerned student, I pay close attention to what goes on in the Student Association. I guess I am among the few who actually place value in what is the voice of the student body. This is why I am so concerned about the new SA constitution that is being proposed. Dan Loren, former […]

Sno-core Ball hits with metal edge

In its six-year history Sno-Core has become the ideal tour for up-and-coming artists to mingle with veteran acts. Each year a diverse mix of groups, ranging from pop-punksters Blink 182 to rap group The Alkaholiks, shares the stage to rock out for large crowds. This year Sno-Core will try something different, splitting the event into […]

`Great Communicator’ turns 90

Tuesday was former President Ronald Reagan’s 90th birthday. As we move forward into the new century, it is fitting that we reflect on the remarkable life he lived, the bold leadership he offered our nation and the world at the crossroads of history and the powerful vision of America he left as his legacy. Ronald […]

Geddy Lee tries to beat the Rush

What happens when one of the most innovative and experimental rock bands of all time breaks up? It’s quite simple actually. The (former) lead singer gathers together a band that seems to match his old band and attempts to revive the fire that died with his original group. This is the tale of former Rush […]

Forum: New constitution will make SA work

Change – it is the single most frightening word for just about everyone. And yet here we stand, as a student body, with the chance to make that change. I have been proud to serve as a senator to the Student Association representing the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences. I have had the first-hand […]

Warhol exhibit offers cheap, easy access to art

The scenario is probably all too familiar to the average GW student: on a weekend night: you promise yourself and others you will head out to the Smithsonian, Capitol or some other cultural or political institution the next day. What follows is the obligatory late night, then the obligatory late rise and finally a compromise. […]
