Muhammed Ali;

Reader comment on item: Muhammad Ali's "Beautiful Soul"

Submitted by William Eakins (United States), Dec 1, 2005 at 13:43

As one who grew up in the time when Muhammed Ali was a young man, I can only say that if I were a recipient of the same award that our President bestowed on him, I would send it back. I would have to say, "If you can give a humanitarian award to this man, it doesn't mean a thing." You have described the man exactly: selfish, racist, bigoted. Shame on George Bush. Apparently, everything in this country is for sale these days. It is not such a bad thing to have run one's course when you see that there is no longer any honor. Keep up the good work.
