Elvis and Dick

Dear Mr. President
First, I would like to introduce myself. I am Elvis Presley and admire you
and have great respect for your office. I talked to Vice President Agnew in
Palm Springs three weeks ago and expressed my concern for our country. The
drug culture, the hippie elements, the SDS, Black Panthers, etc. do NOT
consider me as their enemy or as they call it The Establishment. I call it
America and I love it. Sir, I can and will be of any service that I can to
help The Country out. I have no concern or Motives other than helping the
country out. ...
