Good, I rather waste the stimulus money than create jobs. Hope and change.

Everywhere you see a free money story you'll see Mary Jo Kilroy or Sherrod Brown.

Save the money..put it towards an actual smart grid.

There is this wonderful thing called research, the library, and the internet. They have full books, websites, etc. on the subject!

I also read somewhere (can't remember the source but I believe Popular Mechanics) that other big name universities have already studied smart grids. Basically they are a brilliant idea, but it would require a complete change in how business is done and physical wiring requirements to businesses and homes.

"Here is $2.5 million to draw up a program syllabus and throw a interim teacher in each quarter."
