Personally I don't agree they should either, but...I can't believe they're flying the flags at half staff In New Jersey.
Agreed!!! While she had a beautiful voice, a junkie does not make a good role model, and certainly not a martyr, an icon nor a hero.Whitney Houston - Do I care that she is dead? No, I do not, or at least i do not care anymore so than I do about the death of someone I did not know personally. Ms. Houston was granted a gift in that she had a beautiful singing voice. But to what end did she use her talent? She bought and used all the drugs that her body could take, until it killed her. Would we care if she couldn't sing? No, we would not, in fact it is unlikely we would ever even hear about it. Whitney Houston's life was one big tragedy. A tragedy of her own creation. She was self destructive. She was a drug abuser. She flaunted her tragedy to the public. One talent in a sea of personal self created failure does not make a person note worthy, and certainly not deserving of the same respect that should be afforded to those that have given their lives to keep our country free. In my opinion, Whitney Houston was not worth the effort it took me to write this, and this will be my last effort on her behalf. To quote Curly Bill ........ Well Bye.
