After making Jerry Maguire, actor Tom Cruise and writer-director Cameron Crowe made plans to work together again.

Staff Editorial: Let us build

GW presented plans to the Zoning Commission for the construction of two new residential buildings along 23rd Street.

Letter to the Editor: Recycling ruse?

I am skeptical about the article, “Groups promote campus recycling” (Nov. 29, p. 1) which is an attempt to convince GW students and faculty that the University does actually recycle.

Hart Murmurs: Reject military tribunals

Even President George W. Bush’s harshest critics have to admit that thus far the military operation in Afghanistan has run surprisingly smoothly. Luckily for those who still would not trust Bush as far as they could throw him, there is plenty to complain about concerning security measures taken since Sept. 11. Hints of a South […]
