  1. Thanks, Paula. I saw a comment or two on YouTube ranredigg the Applause spot, basically saying that they just wished people would actually do that (applaud). Well, I’ve seen it happen: I was part of an airport homecoming for a kid I know who returned from a tour of duty in Iraq, and it was quite a moving experience. A lot of people who didn’t know him joined in. I have a lot of respect for those who volunteer to serve, wherever they get sent. Good people can also disagree about whether we should be there.
