Rally for Decency 

The cops arrest The Lizard King for breaking obscenity laws in Florida. Three weeks later, on March 23, 1969, teens hold the Rally for Decency in Miami drawing 30,000 people, including Jackie Gleason, Anita Bryant and The Lettermen. The rally protests “longhairs and weird dressers” and later is commended by President Richard Nixon.

A Dick and The King 

December 21, 1970 ~  Elvis stops by the White House wanting to talk to President Nixon about how he could help the President with his war on drugs. Dick agreed to meet with Elvis and presented him with his very own Narcotics Bureau badge.

Elvis asked that the meeting be kept “secret” so he could presumably do some “undercover” work.  The Washington Post broke the story a year later presumably while working on another story related to … um … President Nixon.

Ironic that years of abuse of prescription drugs via the bag of Dr. Nichopoulos would kill Elvis on the floor of his bathroom in August 1977.

Ironic, no, that years of abuse of prescription drugs via the bag of Dr. Nichopoulos would kill Elvis on the floor of his bathroom in August 1977?
