I honestly don't think it should be lowered for celebrities. I think it kind of does a disservice to those men and women who have died in battle.

The only reason a flag should be lowered for a celebrity if there is another reason, ie former military, police officer, firefighter, etc.
ITA it shouldn't be left from one governer to the next.
