Apparently, the federal government is employing more than one use of the word “stimulated” when it doles out grants to colleges and universities. “Researchers at Florida Atlantic University received $8,408 in stimulus funds to study whether mice become disoriented when they consume alcohol,” the Washington Examiner reported [1] on February 2, 2010. “Researchers might consider studying whether government’s continuous waste of taxpayer money disillusions voters.”
