List Eater

Most know the story of the listeater at Texas A&M. The Aggies made the Cotton Bowl this year and the students were camping out for tickets. The way it has worked for decades at A&M is each window has a list they keep and they have a roll call every now and then to make sure you are still out there. If you don't answer, you are off the list. Well a girl showed up early the morning the tickets went on sale, stood by the window first in line and refused to go to the back of the line or the back of the list. She then ate the list. Yes, ate the list.

Well this story was first told on texags.com an A&M bullentin board. It then spread to the news channel in College Station KBTX and the Bryan-College Station Eagle, the newspaper in town. Now there are videos of the girl on the KBTX site. It is a classic example of the internet fueling the news cycle. Blogs are taking over the news cycle. Of course this is the most bizzare news I've heard in a long time.

Here are the links:

I recently came across your post and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that it caught my interest and you've provided informative points. I will visit this blog often.

Thank you,

Elden
