    Flags at half mast?

    Is there a website of somewhere I can find out why flags are at half mast on a given day? Today I'm assuming because of the slain officer in Keokuk, but didn't know for sure.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Hate to be the grammar police, BUT

    The only time a flag is flown at half mast is if it is on a boat. Everywhere else it is flown at half staff.

    Carry on.
