Nice to get reminded that I'm not a grinch.

I've reviewed grant proposals for NIH a few times now, and despite the widespread availability of grant advice on the internet, many proposals are truly difficult to read and hard to get excited about. I end up feeling like the state of science is incredibly derivative, poorly thought-out and lazily rationaled. But every once in a while, I see one that rises up out of the mediocrity and is just so freaking cool, that I can't wait to see the investigator(s) publish their work from it and it reassures me that I'm not just a crabby old bastard.
