In order to find a way to reopen White House tours, somebody should really be appointed the job of figuring out where to cut corners.Â Clearly, the $900K that was spent on the presidentâ€™s weekend golfing expedition with Tiger Woods in Florida, at the rate of $74,000 per week, could have kept the doors open to schoolchildren for the remainder of the school year.
If the feds want to squeeze another couple of monthsâ€™ worth of tours out of the tight budget, maybe the National Science Foundation can rescind its $876,752 grant to the University of Iowa to study the sex lives of New Zealand mud snails.Â During this administration at least, finding out â€œwhy any organism has sex,â€ apparently takes priority over White House tours for students. But then again, isnâ€™t Georgetown University sexpert Sandra Fluke someone who should be able to answer that question without it costing taxpayers a million dollars?
Nonetheless, the purpose of the snail sex study is to see if itâ€™s better for snails to â€œreproduce sexually or asexually.â€Â Seems snails do both, which could offer hope for women who desire to have children but just havenâ€™t met that special someone just yet.
