You Go, Girl! Representative Camper Does "Money, Honey," Elvis-Style

Somebody had to think this up sooner or later. Invitees to Memphis state Representative Karen Camper's forthcoming January 8th fund-raiser (in the King's birthday week) are advised that it is an "Elvis Night In" affair -- apparently meaning that it takes place in cyberspace, since no location is mentioned.

Or, as she puts it in the e-mailed invitation: You get to participate in this fund-raiser by "staying at home’ and enjoying Elvis (her bolds)."

Camper makes the following suggestions to donors: "$100—Dance the night away in your ‘Blue Suede Shoes;’ $250—Serenade your love one with your personal rendition of 'Love Me Tender;' $500 -- Watch your favorite Elvis Movie; $1000 -- You decide (cook dinner, play cards, read a book, totally up to you) 'My Way.' '

Oh yes, there's a "Return to Sender" RSVP e-mail address included.
