One live-blog thought about the Tucson memorial service

I know this is meant to be a memorial service, but the Better Half and I keep turning to each other and noting how weirdly like a pep rally it seems. Perhaps those in attendance have little other way of expressing the collective emotion, but frankly the cheering (and most certainly the whooping and whistling) feels out of place and a bit unseemly. Am I wrong in thinking a bit more decorum would be in order for an event one would expect to be somber? Is it churlish to find the constant applause unsettling?
