Pretty amazing that we blow about $700 Million at NEI at NIH each year, and they produce what? Nothing. Well, they spend all that money, a lot of it is wasted on sprucing up their offices and paying people who have retired, but are back on staff as (much over paid) "contractors". It's a game they play across the Federal Government. It's a buddy system that eats up the budgets. Totally legal. Ought to be stopped?
Meanwhile, the rest of the world makes groundbreaking advances.
