Flags at half staff in WA state?

For some unknown reason many of the flags in the rural area where I live were at half staff. I did several internet searches and checked the major news outlets in the state for deaths.

More bodies have been identified in that horrible land slide north of Seattle – the total is over 40. Perhaps that was the reason? As far as I could see from my research no “important” or famous person had died. Chicago had a bloody weekend – 45 deaths. But that’s Chicago. Sad to say – really.

An inmate in one of the third world Southern States starved to death.

The details of the man’s death are grim. There were mental health issues and the people hired to provide medical care mostly didn’t give a damn. Oh well one more death in the 21st century of prohibition – the war on drugs. At least it wasn’t one of the Wall Street con men who stole Billions from we the people –  no forget that those guys are too rich and powerful to go to jail. The man did drink some tea – that counts as a meal according to the medical folks in third world Southern USA.

I’m at a loss about why the flags were at half staff. No one we asked even noticed.
