The irony of beer

By:
02/15/2001

Beer is one of the most ugly things I’ve ever seen. It’s yellow and foamy, and it reminds me of a polluted waterfall as it pours over the edge of a tall glass. If you have ever listened carefully to a drunken conversation, you’ll know that people talk about the most insane things when they’re…

Animal house

The scum-sucker is staring at me. He’s hovering underneath the fake pink and green sea foliage, gills furiously slapping against his body, top fin arched high over his beady little orange-rimmed eyes, glaring at this decidedly unaquatic monstrosity peering down at him. “Doesn’t this THING understand that the sole requirement of scum sucking is absolute…

The cost of U.S. policy in Iraq

By:

The United States’ policy towards Iraq has been without a sane “helmsman” for the past 20 years. The United States actively supported Saddam Hussein even while he committed human rights crimes against his own people. In fact, the Bush and Reagan administrations provided Hussein with expertise regarding nuclear, biological and chemical weapons in addition to…

Over winter break, I had a discussion with a guy I had started seeing, Mike, about whether or not it was a wise idea to raise children with religion. My mom is Catholic, and my dad is Jewish. Neither of them had been practicing for at least 15 years before I was brought into the…

I came to Georgetown for the diversity. The place sounded great, the number of international students was impressive and the options for study abroad were numerous. Coming from a relatively small and semi-rural town in Colorado, I was astounded by the different people I met. My first roommate was from Singapore, and I shared my…

Imperfect, yet perfect: poetry

“And it was at that age … Poetry arrived in search of me. I don’t know, I don’t know where it came from, from winter or a river. I don’t know how or when, no, they were not voices, they were not words, nor silence, but from a street I was summoned ? from the…

Free my addiction

Hi, my name is Rachel, and I am an addict. I guess it all started years ago when my family purchased a computer featuring something new, something exciting, something revolutionary … Windows Version 3.0. Sure, Microsoft Word came in handy and the Calculator was tr?s convenient, but they were nothing compared to what was awaiting…

Thanks to Georgetown … I have a brand new credit card from MBNA. It looks pretty nice; it has a picture of Georgetown, the Visa logo and most of my name. Even the credit limit seems nice. Thanks to Georgetown … MBNA knows all sorts of things about me that I didn’t tell them. (I’m…

A smart, wealthy Swede from Silicon Valley

From a biological standpoint, interracial marriages actually strengthen the human gene pool. Anthropologically speaking, interracial dating is a process of acculturation: adapting to another person’s cultural values while retaining your own. In other words, the easiest way to expand your cultural horizons is to date someone from another culture. Personally, I find that interracial dating…
