[Videos] America Still Has A Lead Problem

John Oliver's Last Week Tonight did another rather targeted piece of investigative journalism on a very old problem - risk of lead poisoning due to the lead content in paint used for older houses and apartments in America. And you'd think that this would be the sort of problem that would have been solved by the "greatest nation in the world" a long time ago, but I guess that's not the case.

Spoiler Alert: This episode makes reference to a 20 year-old Sesame St. segment dedicated to teaching children about how to avoid lead poisoning. And so you know where all this is going to go.
