    That is not the only reason to lower a flag. Houston added significantly to those within the state. I do not know if you have ever been to the area Houston came from. Newark is a hell hole as is the surrounding areas. She instilled hope in many of these people. In spite of her success she returned to the area many times she gave back to the communities, she maintained a residence in New Jersey. That is what is being honored...

    I don't have strong feelings one way or another, but I agree with the governor. It's his state, Houston was much beloved in the state, grew up there, got her start there so if he believes the people of NJ would like her honored this way, it's no skin off my nose. Personally I wouldn't do it for any celebrity, but his state... his rules.

    I wouldn't have done it if I were Gov. but I don't see any reason to get upset over it.

    I think it is a very nice gesture.

    She's a singer, NOT a president/general/whatever.

    It's a mockery of our system.

    Tbh, I'm ******* pissed with that stupid decision.
