In This Week’s Issue
- The song Afternoon Delight is about, among other things, an appetizer from Clyde’s of Georgetown. This and other fun facts in Jeff Reger’s cover featuring Georgetown professors Bill Danoff (the writer of Afternoon Delight) and Walter Egan, who had a hit himself with Magnet and Steel.
- Tim Fernholz is in the market for some Catholic justice, the upshot being, he says, Iraq war architect and Georgetown professor Douglas Feith has got to go.
- With the Big East Tournament underway and the Big Dance on the horizon, the Sports section is (almost) all basketball. Tony Francavilla has a web exclusive on the beating ‘Nova took this afternoon, Phil Perry channels former Hoyas who chose to finish their four years elsewhere, Joseph Richman gives a tip of the hat to DaJuan Summers and Liz Kuebler bigs up JT III.
- Juliana Brint continues her stellar GUSA coverage as Pat is sworn in with ambitious plans for free summer housing, a new alcohol policy and lunch. A little too ambitious, if you ask me.
- Mask & Bauble gets inside G.W. Bush’s head in the winner of their one act play contest and, Ryan May Handy says, it’s both witty and brief. (You can buy tickets here.)
- The Editorial Board tells the National Park Service to clean up its act (and the National Mall).
I’m off to watch the second half of the Pitt-Louisville game. It’s 31-33 right now with Pitt behind, but I smell an upset.
