lazy way of writing a book. I think I'm going to write the 3rd volume. press release: "Elvis: Remembering August 16, 1977 Volume 3" ; How did YOU deal with the loss of the greatest entertainer ever, Elvis Presley on that tragic August 16, 1977? Tell us YOUR story. Did you, for example, directly bought all of his albums, cried for weeks, mow your lawn, made love to your wife, made lousy remixes of his classics, became a fan of Nana Mouskouri instead, started to collect all Elvis-rubberducks, couldn't cope with his death, think he's still alive and are listening everyday to Gail Brewer Giorgio's home made tapes or perhaps think you're an Elvisreincarnation yourself? Write us your story and don't forget to send it to us before 4th of July, so the book will be ready on August 16 and we can start to cash in..

Take heart. Some of us still function on a daily basis. I, for one, can still remember what I did yesterday!

I believe Ruthie is just a nickname. I believe Ruthie is re ally Bill Clinton ( we all know he 's a big Elvis fan).
