Is this not ridiculous? Don't get me wrong, I absolutely loved James Gandolfini in the Sopranos TV show and recently learned what a nice human being he was. Yes, he died way too soon and unexpectedly and I feel so badly for his son, daughter, wife, family and friends.
I just do not get the idea of flying our great symbol, the American flag at half staff for an actor!

Yes, I read he did a lot of good work to help our soldiers and that is quite commendable, but I believe we water down the meaning of our flag at half staff when we lower it for actors and singers, like Whitney Houston. I realize these are famous people from New Jersey and they are very proud of that fact, but how can you compare a gifted human being of the Arts with a national dignitary such as a President of the United States of America, government and military officials.

I LOVED the Sopranos too as millions did, but really, flying our flag at half staff if just a bit much, IMO.

Indeed. A one year old and a 12 year old without a dad. That is so sad.

You're so right because that's exactly what happened.
