    Let's see, we're going to borrow money from China to do this study. While we've had a pretty good chuckle about this over the supper table tonight, can anyone possibly justify this as a taxpayer expense?


    U.S. Will Pay $2.6 Million to Train Chinese Prostitutes to Drink Responsibly on the Job

    (CNSNews.com) -- The National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAA), a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), will pay $2.6 million in U.S. tax dollars to train Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly on the job.

    Dr. Xiaoming Li, the researcher conducting the program, is director of the Prevention Research Center at Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit.

    The grant, made last November, refers to prostitutes as "female sex workers"--or FSW--and their handlers as "gatekeepers."

    This is ridiculous. Everyone knows that is NOT what a proper prostitute training course consists of.

    OK, there's some legitimate question as to whether we should be spending our money on China's problems, but your title is misleading and sensationalistic. The actual program is described in the article posted in the OP.

    Oh for crimminy's sake!

    CHINA?

    What? America doesn't have prostitutes we can train?

    This is the most absurd example of OUT-SOURCING I've ever heard of .

    Now we're outsourcing MEDICAL RESEARCH?!

    Sounds more like to me some Detrot researcher is interested in getting funding to get some of that Chinese poontang, to me, folks.

    No. Spending other people's money is addictive and what that money is spent on is inconsequential.
