One more thing I can not do

When I recently got a government grant for some weather research, I had to sign this document:
Human trafficking! Can't do that no more.

Seriously ... congress in its wisdom has decided that it's a good idea to make government contractors promise not to use slave labor. Good intentions, but this is what it means in practice -- schmucks like me getting science grants have one more piece of paper to sign.

  1. Does this mean you can't use graduate students on that grant? I kid, I kid....
