BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Can’t get enough of “The Simpsons?” A new package from FXX might have you rethink that position.

The cable channel will begin showing the full 25-year run of the animated series.

A Web site and app called “Simpsons World” will give fans on-demand access to all 500-plus episodes of the comedy — and let users search through the life stories of the various characters.

Longtime “Simpsons” executive producer Al Jean says he doesn’t want to make promises he can’t keep — but jokes the site will also “provide you with affordable health care.”

Former Treasurer’s Office Employees File Suit

Republican gubernatorial candidate State Treasurer Dan Rutherford participates in a Republican gubernatorial candidate debate Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014, in Springfield, Ill. The four Republican gubernatorial candidates said that they’ll be willing to work with unions if elected but differed on how to approach the relationship during a downstate debate that largely focused on pension reform, taxes and just briefly on personal issues that have dogged some of the candidates.

The suit is the latest chapter in a saga involving sexual harassment claims that undercut Rutherford's 2014 campaign for governor.
