Stories from the October 29, 2001 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Letter: In defense of satire

With the way everyone is complaining about Brad Simon’s Oct. 15 cartoon you would think he drew a huge swastika or a Hitler parody. The art of drawing cartoons for a newspaper is to chuckle at the expense of a recognizable person or in this case a recognizable group. The Jewish population here is in […]

Volleyball beats Fordham

The GW women’s volleyball team stopped its conference slide with a 3-2 win over Fordham this Sunday at the Smith Center. The Colonials (5-13, 4-6 Atlantic 10) beat the rams in New York earlier this season 3-1. After Fordham (6-14, 1-10 A-10) won the first game 30-26, GW regrouped to take games two and three, […]

Post Sept. 11: Attacks change outlook

Sometimes when I go for a run, I go to the hallowed grounds of Arlington National Cemetery. The grounds, where so many of our bravest patriots peacefully rest, have a distinct, quiet power with an ability to move the most stoic visitors. Prior to Sept. 11, I would explore the cemetery with a sense of […]

Water Polo places ninth

After losses to Harvard and Bucknell Universities Saturday, the GW men’s water polo team placed ninth at the Eastern College Athletic Conference Championships this weekend. GW clinched 5th seed at next week’s Southern Championships by finishing fifth in the Collegiate Water Polo Association Championships. They will have to finish in the top four at Southerns […]

Major studies service

Helping others is not simply what human services majors do on the weekend. It’s going to be their job. The human services program, one of three programs in the sociology department of the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, is more than 20 years old. The major was originally designed for nursing students who wanted […]

Staff Editorial: Postal Problems

Students and University employees have experienced one of the unfortunate side effects from a District in high alert with slowed mail delivery. Of course, everyone understands that with deadly biological agents traveling around the city and surrounding areas through the postal system, delays will occur. But the U.S. Postal Service should be honest with the […]

Around Campus

Student hits jaywalker with car Junior Lisa Ann Blanco hit senior Louise Blanc with her car while turning onto 23rd Street from H Street Thursday afternoon. Witnesses said Blanc hit her head on the car’s bumper before falling to the ground. She was taken to GW Hospital by ambulance, treated for minor injuries and released, […]

SJS right to seal student records

Last year I served as a student hearing board member for GW’s Office of Student Judicial Services, and I strongly disagree that the violations and charges should be more open to the University Community (“GW’s secret service,” Oct. 25, p. 4). The primary reason these files are private is to protect the students involved. SJS […]

Expert profiles terrorist

Despite common American impressions, terrorists are “psychologically normal” and do not violate their interpretation of Islamic law by participating in suicide bombings, terrorist expert and GW professor Jerrold Post told students Wednesday night in Funger Hall. “(Terrorist) groups expel disturbed people because they are a security risk,” Post told a crowd of about 70 people. […]

Inside our pages: More clarity in good reporting

The GW community knows Sigma Alpha Epsilon member Charles Smith was arrested for assaulting a University Police Department officer Sept. 14. You know because Hatchet reporters dug through police reporters and investigated the incident. Now you know Smith has been expelled for his actions. Whether you take it as a lesson that serious actions have […]
