Macon takes pride that Elvis came here. We have the Macon Coliseum which still stands but looks a little bit different. Inside is a few pictures from the 1976 show and I believe two from the 1977 show. They have display one of the many scarves that he gave out. There is two ticket stubs for the 1976 and 1977 shows. There is a shop that is in south Macon that has a Elvis statue in front of it. He sells them. There is a place in north Macon that is call Elvis' place which is a place that you can go in a look around to see stuff of Elvis, no it is not real but it is close enough. I never been to there and was told about it a few days ago. They have four displays that has replica of Elvis' jampsuit that he wore during his Macon shows. So Macon takes Elvis by heart. They have the newspaper in there which you can clearly read about the Digging up of Elvis' grave. Also right next to it is the one which says for the headline "No way for Elvis' Grave". Which tells that the family change its mind.
Well how about you produce that Video tape from CNN? Pity that the damp ruined the paper. Maybe you can get a copy of that fictional rag online and show us?
It never happened. End of. Thats like Gail Brewer Girogio's nonsense.
Exhumeing a body to satisfy public curiosity, I never heard anything as absurd.
Do you honestly expect, with no proof, talking to a lot of well educated, articualte, intelligent Elvis fans that ANYONE here would beleive this rubbish?

The Sun Never Sets On A Legend...
The fact The Times, a very sniffy newspaper back then in 1977 HAD to is more to the point. Elvis was a world renowned figure, of course the paper could not ignore his death.
Nowadays The Times even mentions Elvis Airport stories:-)
The UK and Irish newsagent shops displayed maybe a dozen other daily newspapers with similiar headlines. Most major cities and towns also ran the story in the Evening newspapers. What a sight that was!

I have seen it on Ebay a few times. I been trying to get one ever since my got destory. But you can always come down to see the paper in the the place I have mentioned. They do have it. Although that I don't have personally have the proof but it is displayed right were you can read it. Even several people I have ask remembers it happening and they don't like Elvis that much. But they remember the headlines in the paper. They also remember the CNN report.
The 16 page essay above is an in depth look at how the INTERNATIONAL media covered Elvis's death. CBS First thought it was not that important a story!!!
Of course the rest of the worlds press DID think it a HUGE story.
Another reason why I recommend "In Search of Elvis" by Vernon Chadwick. Credit where it's really due
I also read the story 'bout them exhuming Elvis's casket but nothing ever came of it, fortunately. I think it was just publicity hype.....
I think the topic of the possibility that Elvis could be alive or might have faked his death is what belongs in the grave.
Fact: EPE and others have changed their stories so many times that it is almost impossible to find the truth anymore, anything that is written in the newpapers and any report on the T.V. are pure speculation in this matter.
The thought that Elvis should be exhumed is just plain *****ic, the guy is gone plain and simple. Even if for some bizarre reason this did happen and his bones were tested no-one would believe the results because it would confirm what they don't want to believe!
