Stories from the April 22, 2004 issue of the GW Hatchet.

The Plan

There is one kidnapping every 60 minutes in Latin America. Seventy percent of the victims do not survive. For the past 14 years, there has been one Denzel Washington movie released about every six months. I have to ask: How long will it take the bad guys to realize that King Kong ain’t got shit […]

Column: Defending photographers

Before I get into this issue, I wish for it to be noted that while I write for The Hatchet, as a columnist I have very little oversight from and interaction with the Editorial Board. I have my own opinions, and they are not influenced, censored or biased as a result of my affiliation with […]

Keep your eyes wide open

“Close Your Eyes” (First Look Pictures) is a psychological thriller that tells the story of Dr. Michael Strother (Goran Visnjic), a hypnotist living in London who has the ability to read people’s minds. When a patient of his, Detective Janet Losey (Shirley Henderson), realizes his gift, she entices him to help her on a child […]

Column: Our kids are hurting

It is in the nature of things for the older generation to worry about the young. We worry about what they do, and what they don’t do, and we worry about the kind of adults they will become. These days, there is more to worry about. There is a problem growing among our kids, growing […]

Spring bling!

First, let’s just get the irony of the situation out of the way: a chart-topping college dropout headlined a University-sponsored concert on the quad last Saturday. Moving right along, it’s possible to look at this year’s Spring Fling and see the play list from an eccentric mix CD someone made for you. Numerous musical genres […]

When to play and when to sit

Some of sports’ most memorable moments have been made by athletes playing through pain. Willis Reed with a torn thigh muscle, making his first two shots in Game Seven of the 1970 NBA Finals. Kirk Gibson with a bum leg, hitting the game-winning home run in Game One of the 1988 World Series. The list […]

GW stings Hornets

The GW men’s baseball team didn’t make it easy Tuesday, but the Colonials still came away with a victory on the road, defeating Delaware State University 10-8 to complete the season sweep. Earlier in the year GW beat the Hornets 5-1 at Barcroft Park. Junior starting pitcher Nick Koken left the game after the fourth […]

Letters to the Editor

Library facts We in the Gelman Library appreciate the support and attention the editors and staff of The Hatchet give us, but the editorial published April 19 (“Spend wisely,” p. 4) about plans to install a Starbucks caf? in Gelman Library contained some inaccurate assumptions and facts that led to a few negative conclusions. Let […]

Smith making case as A-10’s top rookie

Freshman Anthony Smith’s teammates know him as a quiet man. The 6-foot-1-inch southpaw simply lets his bat and his left arm do the talking. “If he wasn’t hitting home runs all the time, you wouldn’t even know he’s there,” freshman catcher Steven Wallace said. “What I think is great about him is that he is […]
