    Half-staffing the flag for Whitney Houston

    The governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie, stated that he plans to issue an executive order half-staffing the colors at government buildings on the day of Whitney Houston's funeral.

    I don't live in NJ, but I have a rather large problem with this. Am I on my own here?

    No, personally I don't think we should even send off tributes to music/movie stars who succumb by way of drug use. Amy Winehouse, Whitney Houston and the plethora of other artists who died by OD do not deserve much of anything other than a hole in the ground and the wet dirt to cover it.

    No. Nothing against Whitney, I liked her music, but what did she do to deserve such an honor?

    Didn't you hear? She's American royalty. They said so on Fox news.
    Perfect is the enemy of good enough.
    The pursuit of excellence only for the sake of achieving excellence is a waste:
    Time and energy spent pursuing excellence in one area is
    time and energy that could have been used to improve in another area.
