PREVIOUSLY on the humorous side of our present predicament:
JAY LENO: Welcome to the "Tonight Show," and we want to start off by saying Happy Birthday to President Barack Obama. He is...
[Cheers and applause]
LENO: He is 49, which is eight points higher than his approval rating. Wow.
LENO: If you would like to get him a a gift, he's registered at Bed, Bath and Blame it on Bush. That's the store.
[Laughter and applause]
LENO: What, did you see the cake they had for him? They had a huge cake. A little different than most birthday parties. What he did was he didn't blow out the candles, he just taxed them until they finally gave up and went out on their own.

•Comedy in the tragedy
•Seeing the humor in a disaster
•Obamacare and trillions of dollars of unfunded mandates
•Where has the laughter gone?
