11. Senator Kennedy was one of the three longest serving senators in the history of the
U.S. Senate. Furthermore Kennedy led and played a key role in passing some of this country's most important social and civil rights legislation.

I think it is the President'S prerogative to decide when the flags will be flown at half mast.
This occasion is significant and should be honored.
