We were explicitly turned down.

Absolutely, we have not exhausted -- or even scratched the surface of all
the possibilities. The problem is that it's an exhausting process! I spent
so much time and effort on proposal/budget preparation and presentation in
the past year ... I just can't afford to do that without being paid. As I
mentioned, maybe someone with some star power could just organize a
fundraiser and have the money in no time. There are people around that can
do that, you know.

Ed, you might want to read up on all the posts since OCT 24 so you get a
full picture of what's going on.
