TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff Monday in memory of "Sopranos" star and New Jersey native James Gandolfini.
Gandolfini died Wednesday in Rome at age 51. A family spokesman says he suffered a heart attack.

How utterly stupid on the part of the two-ton guv!
I never watched Gandolfini's program, but I know what it was about: mafia and murder! Great stuff on which to stuff your brain.
It seems the nation's emblem flies for so many stupid reasons these days. Whitney Houston comes to mind. Did they lower the flag for Michael Jackson?
who the hell is Gandolfini
never heard of him
except once he croaked I heard he was a TV actor
They can fly their own stupid state flag at half staff if they want, but they better not fly the flag of The United States Of America.
Da flag gonna fly for da mobstah.
Da article usa da plural goombah.
When Springsteen goes, they’ll be in a state of mourning for a month.
I wonder how many times the flags in NJ flew at half-staff for soldiers killed in the middle east.
The sad thing here...is that if you asked a hundred Americans about New Jersey....they either relate it to this MTV character...Snooki....or Tony Soprano.
I always thought that Gandolfini could have run for Senator of New Jersey and likely won.
Wanna bet? Anything to distract the nation...
Hey! Hey! Look at the shiny thing over here!
Did they fly their flags at half staff for Orson Welles, who made Grover’s Mill, NJ the talk of the Nation in 1938?
Aww c’mon. This is getting ridiculous.
NJ sure has a perverted perception of Honor...but then again they are not alone.
I would like to know what sacrifice this man made, to bring Honor to the state and/or country...perhaps I missed something.
never heard of him
It always cracks me up that whenever a celebrity dies, people on this forum try to be the first to chime in claiming they never heard of them as if this is some badge of honor.
I've never seen an episode of The Sopranos in my life but I'm not so clueless and out-of-touch to not have known that during it's heyday, it was the most popular show on television.
How often does the Garden State fly half-staff for the troops KIA?
FAT BASTARD ordered NJ state flags to fly at half-mast for Whitney Houston, too.
If you never watched the show, why would anyone take your opinion seriously about this matter? I know I don’t.
BTW, if someone proposed lowering the American flag to half mast, I would agree that was inappropriate.
I really don’t give a hoot if you believe me, I am telling you I never heard of this idiot until he croaked. I have heard of the show, but never partook of a single episode. The most recent thing I watched on TV is Nashville. Italian criminals don’t interest me, I am not from the East Coast like you.
Maybe someone knows this but does the rainbow flag signify anything in addition to homosexual sex? I ask because at a recent flight into Boston’s Logan Airport, I saw what appeared to be the state flag, the U.S. flag and the rainbow flag displayed. Has it come to that? Even in Massachusetts?
