GOD BLESS AMERICA...AND ELVIS 

GOD BLESS AMERICA...AND ELVIS

A press release sent out to mark the occasion of Elvis' birthday read, "ELVIS Presley fans will celebrate his birthday today by remembering the King of rock-and-roll as a singer and soldier." Factually, most people will remember Elvis as the sweaty, white-jumpsuit-wearin', karate kickin', Robert Goulet hatin', TV shootin', pill lovin', black-velvet icon who defined for white middle-class audiences a crazy new sound called rock-and roll, But, hey, we're at war, dissent is reason, and by all accounts, Sgt. Presley was one heckuva good truck driver.
