    Pfffft. The girl is 16. If she wants gray, let her have gray and don't pick at her about it.

    In grad school I worked on an intervention study with human subjects. I hope it will not shock anyone when I say, "People lie." Luckily, the blood work doesn't. :lol:

    No, no, a hundred times no. Government funding is just as subject to the whims of the day as anything else, perhaps more so, because it isn't their money.
