  1. Actually, that brings up a good point. When I posted this, I just assumed it had been written prior to the fracas in Columbus, Ohio, but in fact, the Columbus incident occurred in March. Changes my perspective on it somewhat.

  2. Weird. I just listened to Armed Forces not too long ago and wondered if Elvis got an grief for that line in “Oliver’s Army.” This letter confirms that he must have, but I do remember the fallout that Gonzales referenced above. Nice!
