The documentary comparing Elvis with America-- intriguing.  Elvis came up from nothing, just like America, and for awhile, he had it all -- just like America.  The documentary did a good job showing this.  It's interesting that Elvis rose and fell during the same time that the US rose and fell -- 1930's to the 1970's. 

I think the country is on the verge of dying on the toilet, so the timing of this was appropriate.

yes, it was interesting the way they did it. have to say i was upset at some of the elvis hate from a few of the speakers. don't know their names. if they knew the real story, how elvis was controlled by the vile and evil tom parker they wouldn't say those things  . and as far as saying he didn't help with civil rights, or any such political cause, just because he was famous, he was not obligated to and the colonel surely would have put the kibosh on it if he did.
