Elvis sings about civility

Elvis remembers the good old days (in this rare recording) when people cared about their neighbors. It's a good reminder about civility and also a good opportunity to point out that part of what social conservatives strive for goes beyond Roe v. Wade, it goes to things like the Golden Rule.  Elvis, sings about a time when the Golden Rule was followed far more regularly then in his day, and certainly than today.

That's not to say the Golden Rule isn't alive and somewhat well.  That's a good thing too, it makes reclaiming that sort of notion as a defining principle of the nation more achievable.
