comment Why don't we say Baruch Hu UVoruch Shmo more often?
Another instance where Ashkenazim (and some Sefaradim) refrain from saying it is when hearing Birkat HaKohanim. Yalqut Yosef states to refrain, or at least to answer inaudibly, so as not to confuse the Kohanim and the Sha"Tz.

comment Walled from the times of Joshua: Why Joshua?
In a recent Daily Halacha, Rabbi Eliyahu Mansour added that Yehoshua's being the first to battle 'Amaleq is significant, because Haman is an 'Amaleqite descendant. Also, had it been any walled city at the time of Purim, Eretz Yisra'el would be excluded, because it didn't have any walled cities at the time. To not disrespect Eretz Yisra'el, HaZa"L dialed backed the clock to its first conquest by Yehoshua'.

comment Why do Sefaradim skip “Uva LeTziyon” in the house of a mourner?
They acted in accordance with Siddur Kawanat HaLev, which states that "On Tish'ah Be'Av and in the house of a mourner, mathhilim from 'We'Atah Qadosh'".

The Sha"Tz was one of the mourners, so perhaps he was indeed acting in accordance with Maran HaRav Yosef Karo.

comment How do people daven so quickly, and what's the support for it?
Yalqut Yosef in Hilkhot Tefillah does encourage people who pray slowly to train themselves to pray a little quicker so as to merit Qedushah and Qaddishim. Also, "The King", not "a King" :-)
