Galileo: flawed genius

Galileo Galilei said simply that the Earth orbits the sun. As children of technology, it is very hard for us to comprehend where religion would fit into this discovery. In an age when important scientific discoveries are made almost daily, we are more capable of casting aside today what was truth yesterday. “The Life of […]

Column: Free speech is for everyone

Letters to the Editor

Cog in the wheel Jake Glickfield, a GW sophomore (and future cog in the machine) seems to miss the point of protests (“Commies in D.C.?” Nov. 17, p. 4). Let’s lay down some ground rules to start: First, everyone has a right to express an opinion. Second, an opinion is not invalid simply because it […]

The article “Qualified Free Speech” (Nov. 17, p. 5) was mistakenly attributed to Alexandra Valenti. The article was written by Andrzej Moczydlowski. The Hatchet deeply regrets this mistake.
