Elvis Presley was only 42 when he died in 1977. I was 31 then, so I didn't have the sense that Elvis had been denied a big hunk of life. Now that I'm 50, I feel differently, of course.At the time of his death, the musical era he represented hadn't yet lived long enough to get old -- though Elvis had aged significantly, it seemed, even at 42. Many of us thought he had outlived his piece of an era, along with his youth, transforming into a Las Vegas lounge act in a preposterous jumpsuit: the Liberace of rock.

Once upon a time, there was an alternative rock band called Uncle Tupelo. It was not a typical alternative band, for its songwriters, Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy, drew as much from classic country music as they did from punk rock. This made Uncle Tupelo interesting, but it did not earn the band much of an audience, and eventually Farrar and Tweedy went their separate ways.So now there are two bands -- Farrar's Son Volt and Tweedy's Wilco -- and the children of Uncle Tupelo are doing just fine.

Somewhere in the land is a college professor who has offered the opinion that Elvis Presley should be considered one of the major civil rights figures of the 20th century. That goes to show that no one is immune from making daffy remarks, not even college professors.Which is not to say that Elvis didn't have his impact. He plainly did. But I've always felt his relationship with black Americans was, at best, ambiguous.Years ago, when Pennsylvania Avenue was the cultural and economic hub of blacks in West Baltimore, Elvis' movies -- "Love Me Tender," "Jailhouse Rock," "King Creole" -- played to packed houses.

The giant Blockbuster Video chain has struck a sharp blow to the new NC-17 movie rating by announcing that it will not stock any movie that carries the adults-only designation.As America's largest video retailer with 1,600 outlets, the move by Blockbuster Video was the clearest sign yet of a growing perception that NC-17 equals the X rating that it replaced."We have always had a policy that we don't carry any movie that the Motion Picture Association of America rates X," said Blockbuster spokesman Ron Castell by telephone from the company's Florida headquarters.
