Had he lived, Elvis would be turning 75 years old today. I had the opportunity a couple of years back to visit Graceland. There I learned that while Elvis had his personal demons with alcohol and drugs, one thing it never diminished was his generosity, whether of spirit, wealth, or hospitality. And especially to the common man.
Did you know that despite numerous accolades, there was only one award for which Elvis showed up to accept? It was one from the local Jaycees. Because he thought that was important.
