H.L. Menken, the well worded atheist, had one thing right and wrong about America when he said "No one ever lost money underestimating the taste of the American public," because the cruxnews article reported that some donors balked and withdrew cash after seeing the hydroponic vegetable garden proposed for Our Lord to live in.

Then again, retired people like it warm. Maybe it's an attempt to save on heating bills.
