This Week’s Magazine

The latest edition of the Voice is out, and here’s what’ll you find inside:

– Ricky Schramm, a senior forward and co-captain of Georgetown’s soccer team, has been drafted by the MLS. Kathryn Brand sees what’s on his mind.

– Why did protestors interrupt Georgetown’s MLK Jr. celebration? Kate Mays investigates.

– The University has joined with the Citizens Association of Georgetown to hire a former military sniper to patrol the neighborhood. Mike Bruns finds out that “[Snipers] are trained to watch.”

– P.S. Hepburn and Dan Cook review the new Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Menomena albums. What, you don’t like indie rock?

Defying all expectations, the Voice comes out against the President’s troop surge in Iraq.
