72. 'normal' people'?
look at the tape, everyone in the room was giving basically the exact same smile, including people in the audience.

it is a sign of support, of appreciation, of admiration, of solidarity.

to compare it to w's grotesque snickering on the grave of 3000 souls is just wrong.

I also happen to know that when Edwards visited Ground Zero, with no fanfare, no press, he was overwhelmed, especially when he visited the family center. Bush giggled and snickered as if he was in his living room with his frat boy friends.

The difference between these two is absolute.
