... here's 81-year-old former US Senator Alan Simpson (he of Simpson-Bowles) trying to dance Gangnam Style:
I probably can't do any better, and I don't have a bum knee.
Um, anyway, this was all because Senator Simpson (he of Simpson-Bowles) cited "getting on YouTube so you can see Gangnam Style" as one of those time-wasters that otherwise Internet-savvy people do (along with "Instagramming your breakfast" and "tweeting your first-world problems").
What he'd like you to do is start paying attention to the massive amount of debt the country has, warning that "these old coots will clean out the Treasury before you get there." So he has started an on-line initiative called "The Can Kicks Back" that educates younger people on why debt matters and what can be done about it (though it gets a little scare-tacticy).
Anyhoo, a big ten-gallon Wyoming hat is off to Senator Simpson for getting young people to pay attention in a not-terribly-uncool way.
