Elvis, Polio and Politico

I know there have been a lot of sightings of the famous photo of Elvis getting the polio vaccine, but the on-line magazine Politico ran a whole article about it, putting his public sevice in a full context then and now. In addition to the famous vaccine photo, it also includes a photo I'd never seen before of Elvis visiting with two young girls who were victims of the disease.

Elvis mentioned in a book and TV Guide

I am currently reading a 2007 novel by Jan Karon titled "Home to Holly Springs".  The book is set in Mississippi.  On page 217, a retired railroad conductor tells another character that Elvis used to travel on his train from time to time and that he once ate 4 BBQ sandwiches and left a $100 bill.

In the Holiday Preview TV Guide, the #1 What's Worth Watching pick is the documentary "Elvis: Are You Lonesome Tonight?" airing on Reelz  on Nov 28.  The article is accompanied by a half-page photo of Elvis standing beside one of his cars (a Rolls-Royce, I believe).

Book
I was reading a non-fiction book titled Forty Autumns about a German family separated by the Berlin Wall for forty years.  East Germans were not allowed to listen to any Western radio...news, music, etc.  During the 80's, one member of the family defied the State by listening to a "new" singer he had just discovered called Elvis.  I thought it was pretty amazing that someone would risk state reprisals to listen to Elvis singing.
