You suck. How could you sell out to the man? You used to be cool, but you changed. You became an official student organization of Texas A&M. I would wonder why you don’t just ask to become the University’s personal lapdog, but I guess the Batt’s been trying to take Reveille’s place for years.
We received this email early this morning and felt it was an issue we should kindly address for all our readers.
I see your point, but you don’t know the full story here. We sold out, but we sold out for a great price. We didn’t become Texas A&M’s 1025th official student organization for chump change.
It also makes us an official and legitimate representation of the University. Yeah. Us. Officially representing A&M. Let that wash over you for a second.
We’ve also got ourselves a sweet advisor now. Our advisor is pretty much the Obi-Wan to our Luke, the Dumbledore to our Harry, the Splinter to our Ninja Turtle.
What else do we get? Funding.
Sweet, sweet, funding. Maybe. I dunno. We’ll see. The SOFC says the money starts flowing once we’re considered “obedient” and when we “dance, monkey, dance”, whatever that means. Those people are weird.
And so we boldly go where no A&M newspaper has gone before. No seriously, The Good Bull and The Battalion aren’t recognized student organizations. So as far as we’re concerned, we’re a more legitimate A&M news source than either of them.
In conclusion, did we sell out? Yes. Yes, we did.
