As a Fightin’ Texas Aggie Class of '92, I can attest that just as often as this happening … gasp … women spent the night in men’s rooms. Of course I won’t even comment on what when on in the homes of those of us who lived off campus. Scandalous
Yeah, Baylor Baptist is what it was called way back in the dark ages when I was a kid. It was for that reason my father sent my sister there–I will not comment on the outcome.
As for as the Aggies go, well, you have to give them credit for developing a new style parachute–it opens on impact. But seriously folks, it was the PC movement that made Texas A & M what it is today–in the past, it was an all-male school with a decidedly homophobic R.O.T.C. military flavor. At least, that was what my late gay cousin told me, after his father sent him there “to make a man of him.”
It should be noted (amid the much deserved scorn) that DeLay actually suggested that his concerned Christians simply find alternative places to get their kids schooled and did not (on this occasion) call for the imposition of Creationism on the Aggies (or even on the private Baylor).
I read the WP article, very frightening. Last summer their magazine ran a profile on him; it merely confirmed my belief that he’s one of the 5 most repulsive elected officials in America today. So I guess European leaders aren’t the only anti-Semites, eh december?
LIke this doesn’t happen at every school. I went to a Christian (Well, CATHOLIC) college, and I remember someone being expelled for having his girlfriend spend the night in the dorms. I know, you may not agree, but hey-it’s a private school, their rules.
Plus, the first semester my cousin was there, she was always kicked out of her room in the middle of the night by a roommate who wanted to get it on with her boyfriend. Lovely, eh?
Thank the lord my representative is Ken Bentsen (before that I lived in Sheila Jackson Lee land). We are looking for a new house, and if we venture too far west, I end up in DeLay land. No freakin way I’m gonna live somewhere where Tom DeLay speaks for me. Ugh. The man is truly, truly a menace to our governance.
No kind words for DeLay here either, but he doesn’t get attention in a vacuum, either, ya know. This is the guy the GOP has elected as its House whip, the third-ranking position, and he’s likely to be the party leader in the next term. It also seems likely that he’s actually calling the shots in the House, Hastert being his choice for Speaker knowing he himself would be too radioactive after his prominent leadership of the failed, antidemocratic get-Clinton-and-his-“wrong-worldview” impeachment effort.
Nope, DeLay himself isn’t the problem here, and neither is the prevalence among the electorate of lunacy such as he espouses. Allowing him to act as a lightning rod serves other interests, and we shouldn’t go along with it.
