some people are dumb, others are brilliant

Read first about the dumb guy who wrote into the university newspaper. I don't know why our TAMU logo only belongs on maroon. Apparently, Danny doesn't either. Here's his response:

Subject: Repsonse: A&M logo belongs on maroon only

Dear Editor,

I am writing in response to Charles Holland's mail call letter titled “A&M logo belongs on maroon only.”

Great idea Charles. Let's require everyone to wear a certain color on campus. Real original idea. Where did you get this from the Nazis, or maybe the communists? They use to make people wear certain colors to distinguish each other. Communists in red and Nazis in swastikas. If we have those that are real Aggies wear maroon, then we can persecute those that are not real Aggies.

Honestly, Charles, you can't make people wear a certain color and if people want to buy an Aggie shirt that is booger green that is their right. Charles, right now I am wearing pink capri pants that have Texas A&M all over them and you can't do anything about it.

Thank you for that bit of insight, Danny (and Paula, who apparently helped!)!
