Well that was 17:22 I will never get back. uhh.
now rose, you were only s'posed to zero in on the schwa (ə) sound when enunciated - just the down and flirty etymological end of it. The whole shebang thrown up was for a) the pulchritude of the presenter and b) to assist some of our more challenged pronounciateers, who you know maybe go a little too short-winded and say "Remember the Alamə...,", stuff like that. Can you imagine if this were a dipthong lesson for our Tejous brethren? Might have to use a Green Monster the size of a Sousaphone to build up their lungs to the challenge!

Wayne, Say it isn't so!

From the WSJ: Sat/Sun - June 18-19,2022
Texas A & M's Unreported Foreign Funding
Why the school says $100 Million from Russia
& Qatar is exempt from reporting requirements.


So the question is: Is Jimbo getting any of that money?

It ain’t so, Joe.
“The Education Department closed its investigation in January 2021, and Texas A&M appeared to be in compliance with federal requirements, even claiming to have overreported the amount of foreign funds it received by more than $2 million.”
The author must be a jealous teasip.

There was a time in my adulthood that the Wall Street Journal was a trusted publication with very high journalistic standards. Rupert Murdoch changed all of that.

The only paper that has honest reporting standards is the one I get from the county I grew
up in. WSJ comes as close as any paper to meeting some level of standard.

I don’t know where the last couple of posts are going. But it sounds like this is something that belongs in POTUS Place.

Whoa, now - I can only surmise that when Jimbo gets charged as a luxury tax cheat and for misappropriation of the English language, WSJ will be seen as a prescient beacon for helping him land in a profession more suited for his particular skill set


Now where’s ‘Cutty to vouch for him?

Wayne, no need - rose and I will "self-report" to General Gates, and if subpoenaed (or suborned) to The Farm to testify, will also express our indebtedness for Texas 8&4 (or Texas 84ToZip) hiring Fraudchione to set the Saban Dark Star in motion. We'll also state our firm belief that when Jimbo goes, as he inevitably will, there's an aTm caretaker coach tanned rested and ready who knows the territory, Destiny's Darling, Mike a/k/a "It's Rolling, Baby, It's Rolling" Price.

Don't drag me in, my post was without comment Wayne.

As for taking foreign money, those in glass houses, like me, shouldn't throw stones. Heck I've sold new homes to at least two Michiganers, three Illinoisians, one Ohioan, a Texican, a sushi restaurant owner and a nail salon entrepreneur.

Don't tell, but I discriminatingly sent one family from Georgia packing, dawg fans.

I have reported post 124 to a moderator. I am greatly offended by the implication. lf moderator does not respond I will address the individual directly.
Rose, Cracker and others, I enjoy the football/sports and school related teasing. It's just clean fun. I think I give as much as I get. I even enjoy Crackers comments, when I can understand them.
Cracker, Isn't AL Coach Price a zero net sum participant.
But wise cracks about Russia money in this day and time is crossing the line.

A direct quote from the WSJ is not a wise crack.
