should I believe anything I read about elvis on quora?


Es­ti­mated reading time is 1 minute.

SOMEONE ASKED ME, “Should I be­lieve any­thing I read about Elvis on Quora?” I be­lieve in an­swering yes-or-no ques­tions with a yes or a no, so I re­sponded with a simple “Yes.” But I also be­lieve in adding nec­es­sary caveats to those one-word an­swers so I fol­lowed that with, “But only if I wrote it.”

Oth­er­wise, there ain’t enough salt in the Île de Ré to handle all the mis­un­der­standing, mis­in­for­ma­tion, and out-and-out boolschidt about Elvis Presley on that platform.

Hell’s Belles, it’s less trust­worthy about that man’s life and ca­reer than Wikipedia!

My answers on Quora

I just added a new page, “My An­swers to Elvis-Related Ques­tions On Quora.” It’s just a list of al­most 200 ques­tions as they ap­peared on Quora. Click on any ques­tion and it will take you to Quora where you can read my an­swer to that question.

Some of my an­swers are lengthy and in­tel­li­gent; others are short and far­cical. To read that ar­ticle, click here.
