Well, this was disgusting

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

Submitted by Valdron (Canada), Nov 30, 2005 at 13:29

... Who is Muhammed Ali. He was probably the greatest boxer in American history, a man who represented America at the Olympics and brought back a gold medal, and who found that still didn't allow him to eat in a Whites-only restaurant. He was a man who stood up for black people, and who opposed the Vietnam War. ...

The point is that Ali was a man through and through, whether you liked him or not, whether you disagreed with him or agreed with him. Bottom line, he was a man, he stood tall and took no crap. Now, he's a sick and dying man .... Well, I'm pretty ...disgusted.
