    Having it at a college in a large coliseum .
    I don't think the fact that a coliseum was used is a valid excuse.
    Last year we had a local LEO killed in the line of duty. His funeral was on the campus of Wake Forest U at it's large auditorium not the chapel. Everything was very dignified. By the way his wife was on staff at WF.

    We are talkig about politicians here and not mourners.

    Does anyone think a politicain is going to waste the opportunity that a tragedy presents to enhance thier campaigns, do you?

    Well, maybe the people who actually attended the service, and were more closely affected by the tragedy are better equipped to decide if they want to offer applause at certain points of the event.

    But then again, maybe folks sitting on the computer in other parts of the country are better at massacre memorial service etiquette?

    While we're on the subject of 'maybes', maybe there was one of these!

    And you think giving a memorial service a name and handing out T-shirts was apropriate?
    That was disgusting.

    I am not going to say that Tuscon cant mourn how they want to...

    But the title was "Memorial Service, Share YOUR thought"

    My thoughts were that all the college students...chanting Obama Obama Obama, Obama we love you!!!!!! Was a DISGRACE...and I stated so.

    I bet half of those kids, went drunk!!!!!!

    "Dude, did you hear Obama is comming to our school" "I'm totally going, bro" "Yea, lets go bro...and lets get drunk dude...it'll be cool, man cuz when Obama gets up on stage we can totally yell out to him, man it will be like he is talking to us..bro"

    95% of the students wouldnt have been there regards,

    NCA....

    I agree with whom ever said it..."if this were at a church this wouldnt be a topic"

    I wonder how many people Glenn Beck is ticking off today?

    Seems that these days, there are a lot of conservatives who have a negative visceral reaction to unifying the country.

    I wonder why that is?

    Its easier to control the masses if you keep them scared and looking for their shepard. And Dear Mr. Beck is such a compassionate sheperd. Did you hear his sermon the other day...

    Who are you saying is unifying the country? Obama? Seriously? He coined the term "bitter clinger", after the election he reminded the republicans "I won, you lost". The great unifier...
