Hurtful Haunting: Saying it was not their intention to offend anyone, Jaycees in Memphis have apologized to an official of Elvis Presley’s estate for a haunted house that included a “Dead Elvis” exhibit and say they will tone it down. The haunted house, set up to raise money for charity and offer an anti-drug message this Halloween season, included a room decorated with a toilet, empty pizza boxes, pill bottles and partly eaten jelly doughnuts--apparent references to Presley’s weight gain and prescription drug abuse late in life.
