Was New Jersey right to fly the state flag at half-staff in honor of Whitney Houston?
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie order NJ to fly the state flag at half-staff in honor of Whitney Houston. However, some are not so pleased with this decision. One municipality ignored the order. A Michigan man who’s son gave his life in 2005 serving the USA burned a NJ flag in his backyard, saying that this act cheapens the meaning of lowering the flag. Christie defended his decision, saying “For those people who say, ‘I don’t think she deserves it,’ I say to them, ‘I understand that you don’t think that. I do, and it’s my executive order.’”
