To address the question in the title, a brief discussion is presented
of results from HST optical observations for the `UGC FR I sample' of
nearby galaxies with radio jets. In particular, the central dust
distributions are discussed which trace the potential fuel reservoir
for nuclear activity. The results warrant further testing of the
scenario that many ellipticals go through a radio-jet phase.
