    at half-mast for just a half a day. That would be Memorial Day. Today is not Memorial Day.

    Most half staff days suggest that the flag is at half staff from sunrise until sunset on the days of the order. Memorial day is the exception where the flag is at half staff from sunrise until noon.

    This ain't no party. This ain't no disco. This ain't no foolin' around!

      for 9/11. still, it wouldn't have typically been left up overnight. that's wrong.

      •  Yes they are if they are illuminated. (0+ / 0-)

        This looks like one that would be, on top of a building near the Capitol.

      •  Since yesterday was 9/11 (0+ / 0-)

        wouldn't it have then come down at noon, yesterday? Perhaps someone screwed up and was supposed to take it down yesterday and didn't; I don't know. But either there was a half-mast flag screw up or Malkin's photo was a tad doctored up.
