WEB EXCLUSIVE: Tenth straight hurts most

Posted 3:30 p.m. Feb. 22 — The frustration of a team that suffered its 10th-straight loss was apparent Thursday night in GW’s 89-59 loss to visiting Dayton, the Colonials worst loss this season.

Homosexual Hasidics can’t stand the heat

“Do not lie with a male as one lies with a woman; it is an abhorrence” (Leviticus 18:22).

Is this what is it means to hang with the man himself? An endless string of weekends. It might have been a […]

Sports: Having a home-court and maybe an advantage

While it is impossible to quantify exactly how playing at home contributed to the GW men’s 7-0 sweep of George Mason this weekend, a new air-pressured facility seem to be giving the men’s and women’s tennis teams a newfound home-court advantage. The domed facility, consisting of five indoor courts, is a major part of a […]

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. […]
