$15 billion for AIDS over 5 years. Not enough, but I'm quite impressed.

edit: This was inconceivable just two years ago. I think much of the credit for this announcement should go to Bono and Prof. Sachs.

I think the clapping is some old tradition. Does anyone remember the old Saturday Night Live segment where Dan Quayle kept looking to Rep. Foley to know whether or not to stand?

He did mention the African AIDS funding, along the lines of $15 billion, including $10 billion in new money. But since I am watching it on FOXNews, it is probably just biased media spin and he didn't really say that.

It is akin to what went on in all those Communist countries the USA found so distasteful.

Those of us who lived in them know that political speeches were full of these ridiculous claps. Very similar to the huge crowds gathered to cheer on the president (the workers would be given paid days off to attend, and yes, attendance was mandatory).

My mother watched the speech tonight, and laughed. Brought back memories of Eastern Europe, that's for sure.

Well, I guess they could make it a little less Communist by putting on powdered wigs and jeering at each other like those feisty Commons and Lords do in London.

Is it true that in Alabama T Vs are sold with the dial glued to the Fox channel?

We do not have TVs or electricity in Alabama. I had to drive my tractor to California in order to watch it.
