With the poison-letter charges dropped against Paul Kevin Curtis, the all-over-the-place Elvis impersonator, the FBI has turned its attention to Curtis's "longtime personal enemy" J. Everett Dutschke. This one is a tae kwon do instructor currently fighting child molestation charges, who plays in a band called Dusty and the Robodrum, a "Live-Loop Oriented Rock with tons of lasers," and has collaborated with a member of Pearl Jam. He allegedly might have "framed Curtis because of a feud that began with music and martial arts." This saga isn't quite premium cable caliber, but it is very network television.
