Random Monday

According to the National Archives, the most requested document they have is the 1970 photo of President Richard Nixon shaking hands with Elvis Presley. One wonders why, doesn't one? Guess Nixon still has a lot of fans. The book with the wonderfully uninspired and direct title Elvis: What Happened? gives an eyewitness account of all the pills Elvis had swallowed leading up to the sudden decision to visit the White House. And this adds to the irony of Nixon making Elvis some kind of double-secret spy for the DEA during this meeting.

Thought for the start of the week, from a bumpersticker I saw in Napa.
"Wag more. Bark less."

i think that the photo op with nixon occurred right around the time elvis was moonlighting as a tennessee state trooper or some such law enforcement person, armed with his mercedes and one of those blue night lights. oh yes, and perhaps a television-killing gun or two.
