Cowboy Poetry Festival Saves Tens of Thousands of Lives

Sen. Harry Reid recently said, “The National Endowment of the Humanities is the reason we have in northern Nevada every January a cowboy-poetry festival. Had that program not been around, the tens of thousands of people who come there every year would not exist.”

Does that mean those tens of thousands of people never would have been born in the first place? Or that, were it not for the cowboy poetry festival, they would have met their untimely demise?
