Some years ago, I was at my local skeet and trap facility and noted that the flag was at half staff. When I inquired as to the reason, I was told that the conservative cabal ruling the board had ordered it, to mark the death of Margaret Thatcher. I replied, that I wasn't aware she was a skeet shooter.
I’ve seen at least a half-dozen US flags at half-staff (govt and private-owned flagpoles)since McCain died and since “9-11”. Here it is three days after “9-11” and 2 weeks since McCain was buried, and they are still at half-staff. Either there are a bunch of lazy-ass individuals who don’t know flag protocol, or half-staffing the flag is a new version of “virtue signaling”.
"Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on, or by imbeciles who really mean it." — Mark Twain
When Mom passed last month, Dad raised his flag to half staff. He told me, she was just as much as part of his Army career as he was, and she deserved it.
It seemed suitable to me.
No matter where you go, there you are
I always prefer reality when I can figure out what it is.
