Fly on the Wall 1515 

Dammit, Gannett

Neverending Elvis

The best King-of-Rock-and-Roll related headline from the past week comes to us courtesy of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram: "Guy running for Congress named Elvis Presley does a mean Elvis Presley."

Star-Telegram reporter Matthew Martinez looked outside the Lone Star state to report on Elvis D. Presley, who's running as a Libertarian candidate for Arkansas' U.S. House District 1.

Elvis D. is a resident of Star City (where else?) and has also run for governor, and land commissioner, but would probably settle for just being your Teddy Bear.
