Elvis is always going to be newsworthy no matter what the case may be because of his name and the image. But that's all besides the point. It's the lack of respect for him as a legendary figure that concerns me as a life long fan.
Personally, I've given up on hope for EPE to do something with the area around Graceland. It will always be ghetto. I have finally come to the realization that those plans will never happen. No matter who the new owner is. Whoever does become the new owner though will just do what the past ones have done, which is not much at all. They will keep the same visitor center outdoors that they have had for 30 years, the same run down hotel and all the same out of date facilities until they rot away.
Unfortunately, eventually someone is going to get killed at Graceland sooner than later either by oncoming traffic by crossing the busy highway or by some thug living there in the neighborhood. And when it does happen (and it will) I'm going to say, I told you so.
