Why is the US flag at half-staff today? (16 Mar 2013)
I noticed while I was running some errands this morning that the US flag is at half-staff in front of many businesses that normally fly the flag.
I also found that there’s a website you can check to find out “why flags are flying at half-mast in your area”, at http://halfstaff.us/ and at http://halfstaff.org/. But those sites aren’t telling me anything about today.
Are US flags flying in your area today, and are they all the way up, or are they at half staff?
