Stanley Thorton Jr., who gained publicity for himself and his
website when Sen. Tom Coburn used him as an example of social security waste, now wants an apology.

Thornton has had to move out of the apartment shared with Diaz, now deceased, as he lacked the funds on his own to keep up with the rent. Perhaps a bit more recognition would allow him to sell ads for baby products on his website, and get him off of SSI.
