A Common Theme

New Jersey's governor decided to fly the flags at half staff for Whitney Houston's funeral on Saturday. Many people are protesting because of Houston's history of drug use. But the governor defended his actions by basically saying any negative things she did should not erase her accomplishments.

In The Vow, at one point in the movie, the mom says, "I chose to stay for all of the good he had done, and to not leave for the one bad thing he did."

So do the bad things someone does cancel out the good? Do we have to let someone who murders someone go because they found a cure for cancer? Does a girl who feeds a homeless person every day get a pass when she cheats on her boyfriend?

Just random thoughts on my mind. Hmm...
