Stories from the February 15, 2001 issue of the GW Hatchet.

A Clockwork Orange loses sight of central theme

The infamous Alex, from Anthony Burgess’s classic novel A Clockwork Orange, and his band of “droogs” are loose on the city streets once again for a night of “ultraviolence,” murder and rape. Only this time, in a production by the Studio Theatre, their violent actions fail to shock, inspire or truly convey Burgess’s commentary on […]

Star-struck students in D.C.

In California celebrity sightings are a common thing. It seems less likely that celebrities would be walking the streets of D.C., but many students testify to not only star-gazing but brushing shoulders with a variety of celebrities including musicians, politicians and professional athletes. Sophomore Alexandra Tagle said she met Backstreet Boy Howie Dorough last Friday […]

Burying the Hatchet

I’m in this long distance relationship. I like the guy and all but I’m starting to question whether it is worth keeping up the relationship if eventually I know it will end. I think of all the money invested in it and it’s nice knowing I have someone and that I’m getting play, but seriously, […]

Baseball back in Full Swing

The GW baseball team is anxious to finally play ball this weekend. In its first series of the season, the Colonials take on host University of North Carolina-Wilmington in a doubleheader Saturday and finish up the three-game season opener with an afternoon match Sunday. The Colonial will have their work cut out for them against […]

Letter to the Editor: Finally, a class act

As an avid, but frustrated GW basketball fan and alumna, I am writing to commend Bernard Barrow for his behavior at last Sunday’s men’s basketball game against Duquesne. While four of his teammates scuffled with members of the other team, he simply sat at half court and watched. Perhaps if Barrow’s teammates followed his example, […]

Chris Rock sets his sights on the movie industry

Chris Rock hits hard and takes no prisoners. Unencumbered and unrelenting, Rock’s outrageously forthright brand of comedy levels potshots at white America, black America, the rich, the poor and, in the end, leaves everyone a bit insulted and genuinely amused. Now, after success in stand-up and on TV, Rock sets his sights on ruling the […]

Letter to the Editor: Community success

I am writing in response to “Popular programs disappoint” (Feb. 12, p. 6). Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. However, before one makes generalizations about an entire organization, one should research the subject more deeply. The communities mentioned are in the Hall on Virginia Avenue and the Dakota. Not once did the article mention […]

Letter to the Editor: The real Reagan

When Ronald Reagan entered office in 1981, he was two weeks shy of his 70th birthday. When he left in 1989, he was almost 79. People have called him a hero because he allowed some Americans to indulge again in the post-World War II American dream of a house in the suburbs with all the […]
