No Street For Colonel Parker In Holland

Although it has been 100 years since Colonel Parker was born in Holland, the city of Breda - birthplace of the Colonel, aka Andreas van Kuijk - sees no reason to honor him with "the Tom Parker Street". The official request was discussed this week, and rejected. One of the arguments against a "Tom Parker Street" is that the Colonel denied or at least tried to hide his Dutch roots for many years, he even changed his original Dutch name. Also, Colonel may have played an important role in the life of Elvis but he never prided himself with being a citizen of Breda and, consequently, he therefore never contributed to the history of the city.

Good!! I'm glad they have seen sense. He was a murderer who deserves to rot in hell. Elvis may well still be alive today if Parker hadn't worked him into the ground.

How about an honorary prison cell?

How about a dark alley or tunnel leading to the underground? Better yet, a cematary. More appropriate I think.
