In the gated community I used to live in called Fairfield Harbour, a fairly new resident who was an officer in the NYFD & a first responder to 9/11 has just succumbed to the effect of the toxins at the site. He was an honorary member of the local fire dept. He was also an officer in the NY nationaluard & held flag rank. Well, the local volunteer fire dept. was flying the flag at half mast as a tribute to this hero. The community mgr ordered the flag raised to full height. Nothing is sacred in Fairfield Harbour,NC. Community politics trump sacrifice.
