Fame definitely should not be a reason to honor and respect someone. If the person is famous for something actually important, then sure, but an entertainer? No.And what would it take to be important?
I'm sure you have done shit for the Red Cross, CDF, and created charity organizations though.
I bet you're one of those people who, when confronted with someone who doesn't like a movie, says "Well let's see you make a better movie then."
Read my post again. All I said was that fame alone isn't a reason to honor and respect someone. And yes, it's good that she did charity work, but it's not that significant proportionately when a rich person does it. Sure, she can toss a shitload of money around, and yes, it helps a lot of people, but I still don't think that a rich person using a fraction of their money for charity is all that impressive.
I personally don't give a shit about flag lowering and whatever, it's just a piece of cloth to me. They can honor whoever they want to, I just think they honoring her just because she was a celebrity and did some charity work is retarded.
