    With all due respect to Ms. Houston. I'd say he's much more deserving.
    This country and Gov Christie are seriously sick.

    Guess the Gov isn't familiar with the Flag code;

    The section provides that the President shall order the flag flown at half-staff for stipulated periods “upon the death of principal figures of the United States Government and the Governor of a state, territory, or possession.” After the death of other officials or foreign dignitaries, the flag may be flown at half-staff according to Presidential instructions or in accordance with recognized custom not inconsistent with law. In addition, the Governor of a state, territory, or possession, or the Mayor of the District of Columbia, may direct that the national flag be flown at half-staff, in the event of the death of a present or former official of the respective government or in the event of the death of a member of the Armed Forces from that jurisdiction.

    Not sure where she would fall in there...

    Agreed.

    If a celebrity dies the news is broadcast throughout the world. If a Marine dies, he/she gets a 1/2 inch blurb in the local paper. Tragic.

    I think that we should fly the flag at half staff for everybody who dies.
