If he keeps up his track, I would agree to a half-mast of both the Philadelphia & Pennsylvania flags for Bill Cosby, when his time comes. However, not the U.S. flag because he did not risk his life to preserve the country or save other lives.
No disagreement there. I grew up near the housing project Bill Crosby grew up in (Richard Allen) Ours was the Cambridge Mall Housing Project in North Philly. Anyone that grew up there knew it was rough, and we were poor and working class families. Mostly immigrants from the South.

What I admire about Bill is how he managed to overcome this and rise to heights unknown by most blacks from there. Unimaginable, actually. Also, his not forgetting his roots and giving back and reaching down to help others. He and his wife Camillie have donated millions to black colleges and of course Temple University too.

He would deserve acknowledgement for his contributions to American culture as well.
