Elvis Trivia

Elvis wanted to be a political activist, so he hand-delivered a letter to a White House guard and met with President Nixon on December 21, 1970. Presley embraced the president, gave him a gun, and stated that he had been studying "drug culture" for the last ten years. Nixon awarded Elvis an honorary Narcotics Bureau badge.

I guess we now know that he graduated suma cum loudy!

That also caught my attention! Some of us can think of things we've "studied" too, can't we?
