10. Always remember that Franken segment on Air America

where he related a story, Franken and Simmons playing racquetball together in NYC.

Simmons . . . unbelievable at the time, understated now.

. . . Nugent, small change.

13. My response on Facebook:

Mr. Simmons, I have to admit that I was going to come here to tell you to fuck off, but I've had second thoughts about that. Your apology is not accepted on behalf of those who deal with mental health issues everyday. I have dealt my entire adult life with depression (well over 25 years). I am on 5-6 different medications to keep me stable. Not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to afford them like I can. If we treated mental health issues as an illness instead of a joke, our society would be much better off and we would have less people in prisons, jails, hospitals, and on government assistance. The sad fact is we don't. I seriously urge you to go volunteer for a day or a week at a mental health facility or jail and talk to people who are dealing with mental health issues. I think you will be surprised at what you find. Finally, I want to say that I object to the way you brought up your mother being in a concentration camp and the comparison to someone who is suicidal. It seems as though you treat one as serious and the other as a joke. This shows me you truly have no empathy for others.
