"While much is too strange to be believed, nothing is to strange to have happened."That is a quotation from Thomas Hardy. And I ask you to keep it in mind as you read the following.I admit that much of what I am about to tell you is too strange to be believed. But all of it happened:It is last Thursday night (actually Friday morning) at 1:05 a.m. EST and I am switching between "Letterman" on NBC and "Viva Las Vegas" on TNT.I am not watching much of "Viva Las Vegas," however, because I have seen it several times and, let's be honest, it is no "King Creole."
