Memphis is excited - we know they won't let us anywhere nearby, but we're still coming out to protest.

Particularly appropriate that Koizumi is visiting the only real shrine in America.

[Insert joke about singing "Grace-rand" or Bush trying to say "Junichiro" and shortening it to "Junie" here. Then delete it for being in bad taste.]

Obligitory Elvis/Nixon link. And so.

Ha! but Koizumi needs a better costume for that. Maybe something like this.

Poorboys and Pilgrims with families
And we are going to Graceland
My traveling companion is nine years old
He is the child of my first marriage
But I've reason to believe
We both will be received
In Graceland

Sun Studios is a hell of a lot more fun and edumacational. As is going to see Al Green preach and sing on a Sunday morning.

But Graceland was cool when I saw it--not nearly as big as I expected. And they don't let you see the bedrooms. Shame.

Follow up. How nice that the Royal Family of Rock and Roll was on hand to greet the PM.
