Crying in the Chapel

This August 16th marks 31 years since the alleged death of Elvis Presley, and I say “alleged” since there are many books out there which debunk the death of Elvis as a cruel myth. And yes, I have even read a couple. Sadly, these titles are not to be found at Santa Fe Public, but we can grab them for you through our Interlibrary Loan Service, from other libraries around the country who are less skeptical about death hoaxes.

The Elvis Files: Was His Death Faked?

Elvis’ DNA Proves He’s Alive

Elvis Undercover: Is He Alive and Coming Back?

Is Elvis Alive?

Personally, although I’ve read a couple of convincing arguments and even consulted the Magic Eight Ball, I’m not convinced. But then sometimes I like to believe it just because it’s fun. Like the Easter Bunny. And all those pilgrimages to Graceland have an extra je ne sais quoi when one thinks that the perpetrator of such décor is still lurking among us, rather than having left the building … forever.
