Ali. The Man meets Bush. The empty suit.

I've been looking for this picture. Thanks.
Shame I have to find it in a place like this.

I've met the MAN in this picture, shook his hand, looked him in the eye and saw him smile. Back in 1992.

At least Ali had the guts to publicly face the consequences of not wanting to fight and kill a people who posed America no threat.

The empty suit in the picture simply went AWOL. And got drunk.
