      We as Americans should be ashamed if the general public feels a music pop star somehow belongs in the top 10 least of Greatest Americans…. yes I’m talking about Elvis.

      I Oprah is arguable but I’m not dead against it, but a pop star is just going too far. Heck I would put Donald Trump or Puffy above Elvis, they’ve actually contributed something substantial to America.
