OK, so Newsweek has a story in its current (May 13) edition about how Afghan military intelligence thinks Osama bin Laden is alive and living in Pakistan. This is in the next to last graf:
… bin Laden is likely to prove harder to catch. “He’s kind of like Elvis,” says Col. Wayland Parker, the U.S. military’s liaison between coalition forces and the British-led international security force in Kabul. “He’s here, he’s dead, he’s there, he’s alive. The last time we felt sure about where, he was in Tora Bora. After that, he drops off the radar screen.”
First of all, as far as I understand it, Elvis is not elusive. Elvis is dead.
Second of all, I’ve gotta think that someone who can be called “Col. Parker” shouldn’t be making Elvis metaphors….
