Uncle Jay Explains the News

Thanks go to my sister Nancy, who forwarded a link to an Uncle Jay Explains the News video—explaining the system by which Congress takes well-earned recesses. Uncle Jay was news to me, but he’s hilarious—very smart, and an equal-opportunity acid-wit. I immediately started watching a bunch more. One of the best is his shtick on, er, blogs.

If you don’t know Uncle Jay, take a few minutes and go watch.

Oh, and when you’ve watched some of those, take in a few of Walt Handelsman’s animated editorial cartoons.

“An eerie type of chaos can lurk just behind a façade of order—and yet, deep inside the chaos lurks an even eerier type of order.” —Douglas Hofstadter
