Not all content fits into a neat package. Sometimes we come across stories or comments that are irreverent or over the top but still communicate relevant information and ideas. This is the place for such content.

We don't promote swearing or name-calling, however in some cases editing it would lessen the story's impact and authenticity. That being said, this is not a blog, nor is it a place for rants. It is a place where you may find humor, inspiration, or perspective. With these caveats, the content below is offered for your consideration.

Take that! Alan Simpson

School teacher rips retired Montana senator

Smarting from Alan Simpson’s vulgar and idiotic remarks concerning social benefits back in 2010, a retired Montana school teacher, Patty Myers, posted a zinger of a response that has made the rounds across the Internet.

Simpson, the retired Republican senator from Wyoming who co-chaired the debt commission with Erskine Bowles, infuriated Americans far and wide when he told Ashley Carson in an email that Social Security is “a milk cow with 310 million tits.” Carson is the executive director of the Older Women’s League.
