In a growing controversy over how Elvis Presley should be depicted on a commemorative postage stamp, the Graceland estate of the king of rock 'n' roll has weighed in on the side of a slim, trim Elvis.

The U.S. Postal Service has not decided whether to issue such a stamp, but a debate has already begun over how Elvis should appear and whether he deserves to be honored at all in the nation's mail.

Postmaster General Anthony Frank recently told an audience that some want Elvis as he looked early in his career during the 1950s _ slim and rebellious _ while others want the heavier, jumpsuit-clad Las Vegas Elvis of the 1970s.
