....and another thing!! vol. 2

Why aren't the flags at half mast? I mean, for the victims of Katrina?

After 9/11, weren't they down for a month or so?

Actually, the flags here are down right now, but only for Judge Rehnquist (not that there's anything wrong with that) and for Michigan servicemen we've lost in Iraq.

But I haven't heard any anouncement about that kind of gesture for those we lost in the hurricane. It would be nice, I think.

Flags are only supposed to go to half-mast when a head of state dies. Lowering it for civilian deaths (including on 9/11) really just sets a bad precedent.

Oops, looks like you'll have to stick more pins in that effigy!

You're right, now that i think about it. Oh well.
