What do Elvis, Jackie Robinson, and Lucille Ball have in common? They were the first 3 'famous persons' to have their FBI files put online. And this is about as close you'll ever get to the real X-Files

Good link for newbies though - there's some *interesting* reading there.

They've got, I estimate, about 127MB on Frank Sinatra.

But why would the FBI care about good music?

By the way, as dogmatic points out, the black text makes for absolutely riveting reading...

So much for "Freedom of Information".
