    And this^^^^^, Sabre, is exactly how I was raised to think...and correctly/healthily so.
    I don't mean only that I myself should take this^^^ attitude when in a position/appropriate circumstances to...but that I should also respect the rights of others to take this very position with me when appropriate...and be fine with it.
    This is one of the definitive differences between the mind of freedom-loving people like ourselves, Sabre, and the new age unwitting minions of Marxist and Communist thought. My Dad taught me nobody owes me anything but what I earn myself (and he was right in doing so), and if I can't earn it from "them" then I will go elsewhere and earn it...IF it is worthy...by God's grace.

    Rain,

    There are instances where things would be more difficult, but if these people managed to get into The University of Texas, that means there are dozens, if not hundreds of other schools that would have been happy to have them. They are not marooned on a Burnt Orange Island with no alternative. Pick one

    They should be lucky they are not marooned on a maroon island.

    Hmmm, this would seem to be problematic by certain critics:

    “My vision for ‘The Eyes of Texas’ really is to do a lot of listening to all perspectives. But when it comes to the ball games, we will be playing ‘The Eyes of Texas’ as a Longhorn Band and as is customary, I’ll be on the ladder leading in those efforts,Croomes explained."

    Looks like The University finally hired someone with some balls to set things straight musically at the games.
