Weingarten U-WIRE Washington Bureau With the United States’ seizure of the Iraqi leadership last week from the capital city of Baghdad, the war is moving quickly.

Staff Editorial: Push for student Metro discount

With subway fares on the rise and the University’s purchase of The Gallery in Virginia, the administration should work to ensure a Metro student discount. Public transportation discount programs for college students already exist in cities such as Chicago, Atlanta and Cleveland, but D.C. has yet to create one of its own, although is has […]

Staff Editorial: Cutting ties

When current seniors came to GW, one of the first things the University told them was that every student receives their own @gwu.edu e-mail address for life.

Nothing validates a lifestyle like free samples

Last month GW participated in “The Great American Meatout,” a day-long celebration of all things vegetable in which several J Street stations abandoned meat in favor of vegetarian and vegan dishes, while Provisions doled out samples of meatless treats. Many students could be overheard grumbling about the lack of cheesesteaks and chicken Caesar salads, rolling […]

The Buzz: But I have a prescription!

It’s hard to believe marijuana was once not only legal in the United States, but an accepted pharmaceutical drug. A little more than 150 years ago, W. B. O’Shaughnessy, at the Medical College of Calcutta, found the leafy green plant helped alleviate pain and relax muscles. Over the next half a century, doctors worldwide prescribed […]

Hot shaves and hot women
