Funding transformative research
NY Times article on conservatism in science funding. To add to the chorus: it's not curing cancer or anything, but my virginity pledge research would have probably not gotten funded by NIH. I didn't expect to find that virginity pledgers would lie about having had sex, so I wouldn't have known to look for that and I wouldn't have been able to write a proper research proposal to do that.
