Staff editorial: Ride Colonial Express

The University Police Department seems to be on the right track to address the biggest problem students have with the late-night 4-RIDE service: long waits. While technology that would allow drivers to call when they are close by is a positive first step that should be implemented immediately, increased publicity of the Colonial Express is […]

Bi-racial Sex scandel, and teenage Apathy

Director Todd Solondz is a weird guy, really weird. No kind of bad parenting or strange past makes a guy like this. The dude is just plain crazy. He made us feel sorry for a child molester in Happiness and watch the famous “Are you going to rape me?” scene in Welcome to the Dollhouse. […]

Column: Kisses on the cheek abound for in-betweeners

I seem to run into someone I know everywhere I go. Whether it’s on campus, in Georgetown, at Fresh Fields, at Smith & Wollensky’s Grill or on the Metro, I find myself in awkward situations at least three times a day. These uncomfortable scenes occur when I see that particular person I’ve met once or […]

Arts: Costner watches career go to the grave

Kevin Costner’s hope to break free from his streak of flopped movies may just have to wait until next time.

Depth, and a desire to complete last year’s unfinished business has the GW men’s baseball team thinking it can follow up last year’s season, which ended one game shy of the NCAA Tournament. “Had we won that last game, it would have been the best season at GW. But since we didn’t, it was just […]

Around Campus: Briefs

Staff editorial: Lewis vs. Tyson

Although bringing Mike Tyson to D.C. constitutes the city taking the low moral ground on a controversial issue, the D.C. Boxing and Wrestling Commission’s vote supporting the license application of Tyson and opponent Lennox Lewis is the right move for an ailing District economy hit extraordinarily hard by recession after Sept. 11. The District’s tourism […]

Washington Post Executive Editor Leonard Downie, Jr. gave more than 50 students an inside look at one of the nation’s largest newspapers Tuesday night.
