I hadn’t scheduled a blog post today and I was just going to skip it. But then the news just mentioned that it’s the anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death.
Now, my mother used to lament to me every year that Elvis and Groucho Marx died on the same day and how sad it was that no one remembered the sacred Groucho (and, no, that was not sarcasm) because Elvis overshadowed him. And I got annoyed that the news talked about Elvis and not Groucho.
So, I IMDB’d it and found out my mother was wrong all these years. Elvis died August 16, 1977. Groucho held on a few extra days. He died August 19, 1977.
I’m not upset with the news anymore.
