Stories from the January 29, 2004 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Letters to the Editor

Pandering to students When The Hatchet routinely runs accounts of the serious consequences of excessive and often underage drinking in its Crime Log, it is ludicrous that the Hatchet editorial board irresponsibly declared underage drinking “a seemingly insignificant issue” (“Intriguing Lawsuit,” Jan. 22, p. 4).

Column: Israel worth the trip
