In honor of those effected by this disaster.here is an information sheet that you may want to read. While your intentions are the very best..it is not the right thing to do. please take this in the spirit in which it is given, not as a slam in any way.:truce:

Flying the flag at half staff is an area of flag etiquette that most people want to make sure they get right. It is also an area for which the road to error is routinely paved with good intentions. With that in mind, we offer this refresher course as the all important intersection where knowledge meets benevolence.

very good that you posted that. I never would have known and I am sure that others are also ignorant about the proper flag etiquette.

I wish there was a way to show our support thats visible. Thanks for putting the information on there for other readers.

I already read it, thats why I used the word FEEL.But I think you raised an excellent point and I thank you for it. Many of us are looking to show our feelings of sadness.

I believe I heard this morning that flags were to be lowered to half mast in remembrance of SCCJ Rehnquist per Presidential order.

He was quick enough to do that. Why didn't he order it for all the dead folks in NO?
