Audiences suffer slow death by cinema

Iron Monkey in theatres Friday With a mundane storyline and immature humor, Iron Monkey (Miramax) relies on sophisticated choreography to entertain but barely manages to capture audience approval. A shallow plot and depthless characters act as a backdrop for fight scenes. The film seems like only an excuse to show off imaginative choreography from Yuen […]

Blue lights ensure safety

Among students, it is no mystery that GW blue lights around campus are often out of order. They report seeing many of University Police’s 20 emergency phone stations disconnected and unusable at various times. On Monday, blue light phone number 14, located on G Street between 23rd and 24th streets, was covered with a plastic […]

Non-GW students were prohibited from entering all residence halls, and all GW students signed in for visits even in normally unmanned buildings. To tighten security at residence halls such as New Hall and Munson Hall, where GW has […]

Sports: Back in the game?

Junior Kacey Coyne, once a nationally-ranked gymnast, underwent surgery in July following a fall off a vault that fractured her already-damaged spine. Surgery had been in the back of Coyne’s mind long before the accident, which occurred at a meet during her sophomore season. Coyne suffers from a rare case of scoliosis in which her […]

FORUM: Educate to defeat terror

Almost a month ago, the World Trade Center was destroyed by vicious acts of terrorism. The world watched in horror as two planes deliberately crashed into the magnificent towers, leveling them and leaving behind rubble and anguish. Many Americans are now contemplating the fate of the site of the World Trade Center, once clean-up measures […]

Pre-Madness Run joins team and fans

The GW men’s basketball team took a run around the Reflecting Pool Wednesday afternoon, marking the end of preseason training. The first annual “Colonials Run” was three-mile race run by players, coaches and members of the community.

FORUM: Rebuild WTC towers

At 9:30 a.m. on Sept. 11, my roommate woke me by dragging me into the living room while telling me in brief “the world is coming apart.” A little over a half-hour later, I watched as the World Trade Center came crashing down. Back home in New Jersey three weeks later, I caught a glimpse […]
