Stupid Monkey Planet referred me to this site, which is full of videos from kindly "Uncle Jay." It's presented like a kid's show, explaining the news. And this is appropriate, because there are a lot of simple people out there who desperately need some of this stuff explained to them!
I asked Uncle Jay for his permission to post some of his videos, and it turned out they were free for the taking at YouTube. But rather than doing that, why not visit his site after watching the video?
From Uncle Jay: Hi James. . .you can find embeddable versions of Uncle Jay's episodes at his YouTube channel. But don't forget to remind your readers that the Uncle Jay Website (www.unclejayexplains.com) has more stuff, like extra questions from viewers, plus an option to get e-mails every time there's a new episode. --Thanks, Uncle Jay
