I am not a fan of sports and especially not boxing, but Muhammed Ali was special. He shook things up when they needed shaking and he didn't take crap from anyone. He stood up against the Vietnam War at a time when that was an extremely brave thing to do, especially for a black man, and he made people proud. He was a great human being, never mind boxer, and he made a real difference to a lot of lives. I am sorry he is gone.
I don't think there is ever a bad time to talk about how absurd war is, how old men make decisions and young people die. - George Clooney
