Great to see!

It's sad that this story gets fewer comments than LL falling down.

What is the meaning here? That you have to be brain damaged to give more money to the President to waste?

I'm glad she's doing better but dragging her out for this is really rather shameful.

Too many people want to be celebrated for doing their job. She isn't a volunteer. She gets paid. She isn't a hero. She's a politician.

God the wingnuts commenting on this are disgusting. People can and most certainly do recover their faculties after traumatic brain injury. Gabby is an inspiration to all of America and the world. I am a longtime Tucsonan and we were ALL traumatized by the shooting. Gabby is near and dear to us and one of our own and if you have a problem with her miraculous recovery then you are a world class douchebag.

For all the times American politicians have been assasinated. Gabrielle Giffords was very ignorant to think she could speak out in public safe without security.. She should have known better.

again, for those that don't have a clue how things are in Arizona and you think you know it all. I will repeat myself.

In Arizona this is a common occurance practiced by all political people to do community meetings/corner meetings. McCain would go to Nam Jam and stand and sit with us during the concert. It won't be quite that way now I imagine, but this is done all the time. Sometimes if it is a large crowd then security will be in place, it is up to the politician. Most times none is never needed and works great to meet the people you serve. This is not like where you live, Arizona is very laid back.
