Okay, okay, it's technically a "forever" stamp. Same idea.
U.S. Postal Service will dedicate the new Elvis Presley forever stamp August 12. At Graceland. During Elvis Week. Can we get a "hell yeah," and an "American Trilogy," please?
Presley is only the sixth inductee in the USPS Music Icon Series, but the second Sun Studio recording artist. Johnny Cash became a forever stamp in 2013. Other icons in the series include Ray Charles, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Lydia Mendoza.
Postmaster General Megan Brennan says a preview of the stamp will be available at a later date.
Press release boilerplate from Brennan:
“Elvis is a natural addition to our Music Icon Series. His life and talents are an incredible story. Spanning from his humble beginnings in a Tupelo, Mississippi, two-room house to becoming one of the most legendary performance artists of the 20th Century, Elvis Presley’s works continues to resonate with millions the world over.”
One photo of the suspect shows a man committing "the same act," wearing woman's shoes and nothing else. Which is perfectly understandable considering just how sexy the right pair of shoes can make you feel.
Memphis police officers are on the lookout for a man who people say is creeping out drivers by driving naked while pleasuring himself.
Last month, Allyson Duckworth spotted a man she says was driving naked. She says the man had on nothing but sunglasses and a hat. She also says the man was touching himself. She spotted him at Highland and Poplar Avenue.
"It still bothers me,” says Allyson Duckworth, who had grabbed her camera and started recording the man's actions. "When I started videoing him, he really enjoyed that, I think he wants to be seen and wants to be found."

Last fall your Pesky Fly flagged a digital dustup between Justin Timberlake and a Twitter critic who accused J-Tim of being a fair weather Grizzlies fan. Timberlake responded to the dismissive tweet noting that he was from Memphis and owned a piece of the Grizzlies, concluding with the colorful idiom "#Wigsnatch."
Thanks to the remarkable talents of Memphis artist Carly Crawford this TimberTweet has been reproduced in cross stitch.

Go ahead charlatan believers of global climate change; behold how that over a few days, with one simple blow of God’s nostrils the water level in Lake Meade has risen dramatically to levels not seen in many years; and the forecast is for even more precipitation out West.
