I have been a HUGE Whitney Houston fan for years, and believe she was a truly talented, gifted, and beautiful woman who, sadly struggled with addiction. I also understand separating the person from the addiction and believe her personal struggles should not negate her accomplishments and the enormous gifts she gracefully shared with the world. This being said, she did not fight and shed blood for her Country, as Mr. Burri's son has, and so many others. To Mr. Burri and all other families who have had or currently have people fighting for our freedoms, I am sorry you have all been so disrespected by Governor Christie. To Governor Christie, you should be ashamed of yourself for making such an irresponsible, insulting decision.
