Good News: EPA Funding Modern Dance Troupe

But there's nothing to cut.

A small troupe of highly trained dancers will soon appear before Salt Lake City schoolchildren gliding, leaping and twisting into shapes that intend to teach them about air pollution and the environment.

The program is funded by a federal grant... [namely] $25,000 that the Environmental Protection Agency awarded Monday to the Repertory Dance Theatre (RDT) as part of its environmental-justice grants.

All told, the EPA handed out more than $1 million to 46 nonprofit and tribal programs.

This country is headed for fiscal calamity -- and that's not me saying it, it's President Obama's former chief economic adviser, Peter Orszag! -- and I can come to no other conclusion that it's intentional.
