The Greatest - an ornament

Reader comment on item: Muhammad Ali v. George W. Bush

Submitted by (Japan), Nov 29, 2005 at 17:51

"Awarding of the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Muhammad Ali gratuitously celebrated a man profoundly opposed to Mr. Bush's own, his party's, and the country's principles."

..."Muhammad Ali [is] a brave, compassionate, and charming man"

I don't think I have ever agreed with George W. Bush more completely.

Ali is - as a matter of established fact - brave, compassionate and charming.

He made the most brutal of sports beautiful, by his actions he enobled himself.

Did you ever stand in a ring and take every blow George Forman could land?

No? Didn't think so.

Ali is an ornament to humanity. His example enriches us all.
