Parx Rant on Pakalolo Grant

A couple of weeks ago I blogged about the Pakalolo Grants that were available and it does appear that I have at least one reader of this blog.

Kauai blogger Andy Parx writes in his post “Suckling on the Teat of Absurdity“:

…No this is not a joke. And what’s more it wants people to study only indigenous groups including “Native Hawaiians”.

This stuff is absolutely too bizarre to make up.

According to a “funding opportunity notice from the U.S. Health & Human Services Department’s National Institutes of Health” six $500,000 grants- for a total of $3 million- are available…

…Your tax dollars at work. Anyone still looking for hope and change?

Andy… I know this disturbs you greatly… but I got a kick out of seeing the release written the way it was, and I’ve seen much more waste with a lot of other projects that the government funds.
