Further evidence that Texas A&M is a cult

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) – College Station must seem like heaven to many Aggies. So the city of College Station is putting the finishing touches on an eternal resting place for them.

The new Memorial Cemetery of College Station is set to open in a few weeks, and it’s reserved a special section for Aggies and their supporters who want to be close to the Texas A&M campus forever.

The Aggie Field of Honor can accommodate 2,900 Aggie graves and overlooks Kyle Field in the distance.

    Hey now, you are threatening our blog friendship. I am from the Fightin' Texas Aggie Class of 1988.

    By the way, I heard Dat Nguyen speak Monday night. I regret not telling you about it ahead of time due to your VN ancestry and your Cowboy love.

    Having suffered the discrimination associated with being a part of the A&M minority since my graduation in 1976, I have looked forward to the all inclusive "change" toward political correctness that our nation has embraced. Oh to never have to endure another Aggie joke, to be free of the shame of recent football embarassment, and to be able to use my Association of Former Student sticker for handicap parking.

    But our hopes have been dashed because instead of the accurate recognition as a true minority, we have been relegated to cult status. I suppose that this could have been predicted, due to the lack of education by outsiders. And I am sure that the group identity and closeness that has grown from the shared experience of being an oppressed minority is easy to misinterpret, so I know that I speak for all Aggies in saying we forgive you for you know not what you do.

      Hello Ren –

      I'm confused with all the minority talk and I think there are some political references that you stated in which I just don't understand, because that article and my comments had nothing to do with politics.

      I can tell you are sensitive towards TAMU, but my comments weren't meant to hurt but be a little funny. I guess you don't get my form of humor, but that's OK. People joke that Aggies are a cult all the time from all the traditions on campus, to the woot holler, the bon fire, if the dog bark you get to leave class, you walk under a certain tree and you are suppose to get married, and all the other stuff. Most of my Aggie friends admit they are part of a cult and actually embrace that term.

      TAMU is a fine institution in regards to education, one of the best not only in the country but the world, but the traditions and tightness towards each other in my opinion make it a bit loony.

    "A few of the nation's universities such as Notre Dame, Iowa State, West Point and the University of Virginia have had school-affiliated cemeteries for nearly two centuries. But this one is believed to be unique in Texas."

    Plus I always say A&M is a cult is like organized religion is a cult.
