here’s the issue. This was happening all along on a private funding level, from what I understand. All this did is stop government funding which now will be allowed. Scientists love it because now they don’t have to do the hard work to lobby for private funds but can now petition the gov for $ which it will easily dole out along with extra money for support. It’s jut more pork.

Bingo....

The question is, when the Gov't gives the grant does the College still take it's percentage off the top?

The reason I say this is I got into a discussion with a reseacher I know from the U of M. Their complaint was Bush was taking all the money for the wars and when I asked about the higher percentage of the budget going to SSI, M & M I got a blank stare, but I digress...

U of M takes 24% off the top, so if you want 100 grand to go to research you better donate 124 large.... And what are they paying the professional canvasser's to go after the Alumni "Whales" for the large donations? Harvard has them I know that for a fact. So what schools will be doing this and do they have answers to my questions....
