A little piece of Elvis history disappeared this weekend, with the exploding end of the Memphis Baptist Memorial Hospital. The hospital provided a bed for Elvis on a regular basis in his later years, and after he died on his own toilet, it was to the Baptist Memorial that his corpse was hauled for the final confirmation that Elvis had left the building once and for all. We're not sure we can explain this bit, though:

Loudspeakers blared Presley's All Shook Up as some loyal fans shed tears and others lounged on lawn chairs yesterday, sipping champagne mimosas and bloody marys.

(That was while the hospital was being blown up, not while Elvis was being prodded for vital signs.)
