Ummm... did I miss something?
Flags have been flying at half-mast for the last couple of days... but I'm not sure why. Does anybody know? Did I miss the death of an important person?

From here: "INDIANAPOLIS Gov. Mitch Daniels is asking that flags in Indiana be flown at half-staff until dusk Friday to honor the four Indiana National Guard soldiers who were killed in Afghanistan Saturday."

You remind me of the time I was at a con over Memorial Day weekend, and it was such a GOOD con, we all trooped over to a restaurant that had TVs on on Monday, and saw the flags at half mast and were asking each other who died, because we'd totally forgotten it was Memorial Day...

Darn, somebody from Wisconsin knows more about it than I do! *G*

Thanks! Noticed them again this morning, especially in the heart of downtown, but somebody forgot to tell the folks at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument (ironically), since theirs were flying normally.

Hey, fellow Hoosier... so did you know about this flag announcement?

Wasn't sure if it could have had something to do with the earthquake...but seems you have already been answered

I was wondering if that was the reason, too!
