The article “Council Charity Ball raises about $5,000” (Nov. 8, p.7) incorrectly stated that one-third of the event’s proceeds went to subsidizing the cost of food, decorations and music. All of the money raised will go to charity.

One small movement

GW dance students crowded Lincoln Theater Nov. 5 to see a two-part show led by GW associate professor of theater and dance Dana Tai Soon Burgess. His D.C.-based, Asian-American modern dance company, Dana Tai Soon Burgess & Company, is renowned for Asian-inspired works and visual clarity. It is currently celebrating its 12th season. GW dance […]

Space shuttle reopens to public

After once hosting a crew of astronauts and test pilots, the Space Shuttle Enterprise became the home for different kinds of aviators: insects and birds. The craft was left in storage by NASA following its test flights in the 1970s, and the government handed the vehicle over to the National Air and Space Museum in […]

Column: One hour of misery

In two or so months of writing bitter columns, I have slighted the likes of the shoddy GW administration, P. Diddy, Lyndon LaRouche, old people, fickle Red Sox fans, player-haters, SJT, the overseers of Greek-letter life, the GW Hippo, Dick Cheney, the shoddy GW administration, and myself. Oh, and now add your mother to that […]

Audtion Call: GW students wanted to Christmas carol for Dr. Phil, President Bush

GW students will have the opportunity to sing Christmas carols Dec. 12 on a nationally televised program called “Christmas in Washington.” The concert, held at the National Building Museum, will be hosted by Dr. Phil and features performances by Vanessa Williams, LeAnn Rhymes and Ruben Studdard from “American Idol.” President Bush will also be in […]

Spyware plagues student’s computers

(U-WIRE) WASHINGTON – Sophomore Chester Vincent considered himself tech-savvy. But after the pop-up ads appearing on his computer burdened the machine to the point where it refused to turn on, he threw it out and bought a new one. “Every time I opened a web page, I got five other ones I didn’t want,” said […]

Letters to the Editor

One large voice Why does L. Asher Corson claim to speak for the students? How exactly did he get a column entitled “One Small Voice” when it’s clear he’s quite loud? And when did the opinion page become a forum for tearing a person down week by week? I have read The Hatchet since coming […]

“The Polar Express”

It never bodes well for a film when its publicity schemes are analogous to the film itself. Just to paint a picture (and to allow others to experience my discomfort and embarrassment vicariously), at the pre-screening of “The Polar Express,” an adaptation of the timeless Christmas book by Chris Van Allsburg, Warner Brothers had its […]

Chief Justice’s illness could change makeup of Supreme Court

(U-WIRE) WASHINGTON – Since 1994, the face of the Supreme Court of the United States has remained unchanged, consisting of a delicate balance of liberal, conservative, and moderate justices who together weathered some of the toughest legal battles of our time. Yet suddenly, with only ten days left before the Election, 80-year-old Chief Justice William […]

Column: Looking back on the election

I suppose not talking about the election in my first post-Nov. 2 column would be like not talking about the one ton, victorious elephant in the room. Looking back on the events of the past week and, for that matter, the past months of the election, I realized how intertwined the election had been with […]
