“The grant was made available through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, better known as the stimulus package.” [Link]
But I do wish the government would fund a study of why, oh why, goose droppings resemble tiny gray-green grenades. I will wait with bated breath for the findings, happy to know that my tax dollars are being so well spent.
