By Brooke Borel

“A column through Glenn Garvin on Dec. 20 said that the nationwide technological know-how beginning ‘funded a research on Jell-O wrestling on the South Pole.’ that's fallacious. the development happened in the course of off-duty hours with out NSF permission and didn't contain taxpayer funds.”
