We had a huge response/reaction to the announcement that all flags in New Jersey will be flown half-staffed in remembrance of Whitney Houston. 

According to Yahoo!, Christie stated that,  Houston deserves the honor because of her huge cultural impact and as "a daughter of New Jersey.""I am disturbed by people who believe that because her ultimate demise — and we don't know what is the cause of her death yet — but because of her history of substance abuse that somehow she's forfeited the good things that she did in her life,"

What do you think?
