Uncle Jay Explains: August 31, 2009

Ted Kennedy may have been the Lion of the Senate, but it hasn’t been Hakuna Matata there for a long time.   Can’t health care just be re-mastered, like Beatles songs?   Uncle Jay explains it all, with almost no Michael Jackson!

    Another good one Uncle Jay.
    This week we saw the passing of a gentlemanly elder lion that dedicated a part of his life to exposing corruption and fighting for those that had suffered injustice.
    We will miss Dominick Dunne.

    your answer to little Bonita’s question should be required viewing for anyone glued to the evening news, clinging to a weather radio, and carrying mace for defense during a home invasion… statistics are your friend…

  3. Lynda Says:

    I feel sooo much better now. You always make me feel better Uncle Jay.

    Can’t wait till next week, Lynda/Pt. St. John, FL.

    Thx Uncle Jay,

    it was great entertainment again and i loved the SCARY ending. Great special effects.

  5. Carole Says:

    Another great week! However, I am still paranoid about my child being kidnapped by some psycho that should have stayed in prison for eternity. When will children feel safe?

  6. Pitbull Sara Says:

    Thanks for keeping the important issues in perspective… and the not so very important ones in good humor.

  7. JeepersCreepers Says:

    Love the dry humour “…News is only about rare and unusual events” followed by the now poignant sign off “…. Great kids make great new”. Well done Jay.

    PS For Carole: Your kids will feel safe when you stop scaring the bejeezus out of ‘em by buying into and passing on all the crap you see on FOX news. You are the parent. Of course it’s your job to shield them; and that includes shielding them from your own paranoia.

    Here’s to great kids and great parents!

    Wrong lion image for Teddy. It should have been the evil uncle in The Lion King.

    Hi Uncle Jay:

    Gosh Uncle Jay, if Teddy Kennedy’s rich daddy had not been a connected politician, poor Teddy would have spent 10 years in jail for vehicular manslaughter. So Teddy was able to stay out of jail and give taxpayers money to poor people.

    Question: Wow Uncle Jay, I’m poor, do you think I’m in Teddy’s will? Danny, New Braunfels, TX

  11. Sheik Yerbouti Says:

    Jeepers: why Fox? They may slant different ways, but in the end, aren’t they all kind of equally ridiculous?

  12. Don Goldberg Says:

    I’ve watched the network and cable news and I don’t think I really have much of a chance of being struck by enlightening. More like dumbstruck.

  13. Richard Says:

    Hi Uncle jay,

    Apparently, some uninformed and just plain nasty people have written to you this week. Certain folks down Texas way come to mind. The sleazoid comments about Teddy Kennedy are unwarranted. Ted may have come from money, but he never forgot that from those to whom much is given, much is required. Millions of Americans, including a certain citizen of New Braunfels, are better off for Ted Kennedy’s having been in the Senate for 46 years. Teddy wasn’t perfect, but few great men are.

  14. Woog Says:

    I also love the dry humor, particularly the matter of Ted Kennedy saving people from “drowning in a river…”.

    Top notch work, and the commentary was fantastic as always.

  15. Mike Says:

    As long as we’re keeping score –
    Ted Kennedy – 1
    George Bush – 4000

  16. Ed Says:

    “Watch the weather if you care about your family.” That’s hilarious!
