Ali who?
Oh, the boxer.
Such a fascinating obsession with a bloke who pounded his fist into othe people's faces for a living.
I'm not suggesting it defines the man but it goes a long way to influencing my opinion of him.
I'd prefer to see the accolades put upon someone with a bit more of an impact on human endeavour.
I know doctors, lawyers, teachers, parents and charity workers who have done more and receive less.
I'm sure those who were close to him will miss his.
For the rest of us it's probably not a good idea to worship idols, or elevate humans to a godly status, least wise we loose sight of our own significance.

Xx
