    I don't have a problem with it. She was from New Jersey and it only affects state offices, not military bases.

    I think if they feel the need to do that, it's their call. Doesn't affect me one way or the other. Although, no one will ever come close to her singing the National Anthem.

    I don't agree. Don't see anything she did to merit flying the flag at half-staff.

    I'm not mad about it, but it seems ridiculous. Did she ever write any of her hit songs on her own? BTW, the dude that helped her prepare for the National Anthem at the Super Bowl has really danced around whether or not she lyp-synched. He wouldn't come out and say yes or no to it, but instead, focus on other aspects of the event and events afterwards. He might make a good politician.

    Great set of pipes, and young Whitney was likable, but what we've seen for about the last 20 years would not receive such an honor if it was my call, but to each their own.

    I think Christie is paying tribute to what she gave the world, not what she took from it or did to herself. She's a favorite daughter of NJ and he has a lot of constituents to satisfy. No harm, no foul.

    It's the same in all wars, the very young and adventurous give up their lives for the old and cautious, and so the bluecollar for the privileged, the uneducated for the student, the poor for the well off, the patriot for the politician, and the few for the many.

    Maybe Black History Month has something to do with Christie's decision, Ya think?

    I think she took Black History Month too literally?

    The military is just a politcal organization. We are run by civilian politico wankers.
    Greed and favors run the world. NJ is about as crooked as they come. Damn garden state parkway.

    Whitney Houston's mother sang with a group named The Sweet Inspirations. They backed Elvis Presley on some of his Gospel works. They also came out with a self titled album in the 60's. I have that album on my MP3 player. Whitney got her voice from her mother, that's for sure.
