    Thank you Uncle Jay, a very wise, compassionate choice.

    Here we go again–Japan blows up and lives are threatened because the Japanese didn’t build buildings and nuclear plants right and here we go putting our troops in harm’s way and sending them right in the middle of a nuclear fallout place–why can’t Honda,Toyota,Mazda,Sony, Mitsubishi (who by the way invented the vcr and the Japanese zero ww2 airplanes), Suzuki, Kawasaki, etc.,use their huge automobile and freight carrier ships and whaling factory ships to come to the USA and buy staples for their own people so we dont have to rebuild them again for free. We need some people who use their heads for something other than a hat rack in Washington to make these decisions — Where is George Bush when we need him …. – John Lallemand dade city fl

    What a great decision, Uncle Jay. There are just some things that aren’t funny in any way. I have passed watching some other episodes that you have made, especially lately, because I see less and less humor in what is happening to our country and our world. Frankly, I don’t see anything funny about Charlie Sheen, either on his TV show, or in his personal life, but that’s just me. But you are very good at what you do, and maybe next week there will be something to laugh about.

    Thanks Uncle Jay- There are times when it just isn’t possible to have fun. I certainly hope that things are a bit better next Monday. God bless, and all the best.

  5. To Dr. John Says:

    Wow! Dr. John, you’re compassion is overwhelming! But you’re right, those men, women, children deserve to die for having car and electronic companies in their country! And, of course, all those Haitians deserved to die last year for being such a poor, unproductive country. So it’s perfect symmetry.

  6. CT Says:

    We will miss you Uncle Jay,
    The earthquake and tsunami in Japan last week are a terrible natural disaster. The tragic results will continue to be revealed for weeks to come. Will you stay away until you have happy news?

  7. Wackybaby Says:

    Well on the bright side Uncle Jay, at least Charlie Sheen is still in the news.

    :)

  8. Alan Says:

    excellent idea, Uncle Jay! I did my part… I turned off CNN when everything they said or showed became a looping video. and Doctor Florida… it’s a wonderful testimony to the engineering excellence of Japan and anyone and everyone else who designed and built those reactors there that they SURVIVED an earthquake of that magnitude and proximity! please take your rants to some other blog site, and have a nice day!

    Bless you Uncle Jay.

  10. Pat Says:

    You are right Uncle Jay. Quiet and reflection.

  11. RightWingNutJob Says:

    Uncle Jay, this was perhaps your finest hour. Making fun of that earthquake and the subsequent nuclear crisis would have been heartless at best. Your reverence and compassion is admirable. As for those who feel we should not be helping the Japanese, I encourage you to learn some compassion if not for the struggling Japanese people, then for the military personnel we’ve kept in Japan since World War II. Please, everyone, lets all do like Uncle Jay.

  12. CarrieEB Says:

    Thank you for this decision. We are in the midst of untold suffering in Japan and in the followup to the earthquake, we were besieged by calls from reporters wanting tragic stories of American suffering in Japan. The news channels want drama – we just want help.
