Arts: Mothman falls prey to muddled plot

The number one rule of a movie review is not to give anything away. Well, don’t worry. After seeing The Mothman Prophecies, I’m still not sure what happened. Directed by Mark Pellington (Arlington Road), this movie isn’t so much confusing as it is fragmented and may be prove difficult to piece together for even the […]

Swimming struggles at UMBC

GW men’s and swimming teams suffered losses in a tri-meet Sunday afternoon at the Universty of Maryland-Baltimore County. UMBC defeated the men’s team 157-63 while the women lost 149-93. Sophomores Ruth Dubyel and Kristen Fagley led the GW women’s swimming team to a second-place finish in a tri-meet with George Mason and St. Bonaventure at […]

Student strands member of Congress

As one of the two people running the broadcast, I can assure you that it was up to the minute in its accuracy. We used Nextel radios to keep in touch with officials in J Street, who constantly gave us updated […]

Staff editorial: Just pool it

Let’s be blunt – it’s a slow day in the newsroom. It’s pushing 70 degrees, and although it’s only January, much of the staff is starting to develop spring fever. Springtime means two things – spring break and lounging around outside, preferably at swimming pools. GW is blessed with several swimming pools, but unfortunately the […]

Newman aware?

The Hatchet reported Jan. 22 that the Newman Catholic Student Center was participating in the annual “Pro-Life March” on the National Mall (“Newman Center to hold walk for protest,” p. 3). Father Rob Panke was quoted saying it was a “peaceful protest to Roe v. Wade.” What The Hatchet did not mention was that groups […]
