Evolving debate

Remember that whole intelligent design controversy a little while back? If you don’t, it might be worth it to take some time and reflect.

Unearth, Slayer bring metal to D.C.

“Shit, someone just gave me a bottle of booze, sweet!” I was on the phone with Buz McGrath, one of two guitarists from Unearth.

White meat only, please

Meat Market – sounds like another metro-sexual commercial space trying to appear edgy and raw (pun intended, one assumes). The narrow 17th Street venue is actually a former butcher shop.

GW visits 49ers for first time

Heading to Halton Arena for the first time Thursday night to play Charlotte, some might think that the No. 8/9 GW (AP, ESPN/USA Today) women’s basketball team should be fazed by the 49ers’ 22-game home winning streak.
