"The grant Stanford received will fund a research project on sanitation infrastructure and climate change in African American communities" -- huh?

Seriously... sanitation infrastructure and climate change in African American communities studies will produce NOTHING of value. Poop stinks, and it stinks more when it's hot. No matter what color a person is or where they live. This is a boondoggle if I ever saw one. How about spending money on BUILDING PUBLIC TOILETS in urban settings where people are unhoused, instead?

$1.5 million pays for one Manager, one Assistant Manager, one Assistant to the Assistant Manager and one "analyst". Can't wait to read all about the results of the study. 4 people with a set of encyclopedias, citing urban renewal and failed goals of the 70's.
