Ali Has Died



And I won't mention that less than two weeks ago I posted a picture of him being knocked down by Joe Frazier. The Liberally Lean curse continues.

It is hard to explain what a big deal Ali was back in the day.  Boxing was a golden sport and Ali was a showman who took it to an unbelievable level. I stopped down many years later when he lit the Olympic Torch in Los Angeles*. He was a  trembling, shuffling shell of himself -- a man slowly giving way to Parkinson's.

But you have to wonder how a flamboyant and trash talking Muslim who refused to be drafted would have fared in American society these days.
