    Disagree, that honor should be reserved for much more important individuals than entertainers.

    Federal law allows some states to lower the flag half staff without need for a presidential order. If NJ law allows it, then there's nothing to agree or disagree with.

    I absolutely don't think it's a good reason.

    Celebrity trumps honor. Pure Americana in the TeeVee Nation.

    I disagree, I respect her as a singer and person and all but if we lowered the flags for every celebrity that overdosed on drugs we'd have to do this quite a bit.

    Actually I do care. On 10 Feb 2012 - 5 days ago - Marine Lance Cpl. Osbrany Montes De Oca from North Arlington, New Jersey was killed in combat in Helmand province, Afghanistan. On 19 Jan 2012, Marine Cpl. Kevin James Reinhard from Woodbridge, New Jersey was killed in a helicopter crash in Helmand province, Afghanistan. On 11 Dec 2011, Army Spc. Ronald H. Wildrick Jr. from Blairstown, New Jersey died from wounds received in combat in Kunar province, Afghanistan.

    Why was the NJ flag not already at half mast for these heroes who paid the ultimate price for their nation and for their State?

    I'll tell you why because Christie can get more political capital by flying the flag at half mast for a drug addict than for men who served and died with honor. That is what Christie thinks of New Jersey's finest! Isn't that just great?

    How would you like to be a family member of one of these brave men only to be dishonored by the Governor of New Jersey by ignoring their service and sacrifice and flying the flag at half mast for someone who died after a long and trouble life of drug abuse? I cannot imagine. Christie may as well just pee on their graves.
