Remembering Cassius Clay

Muhammad Ali fight

Muhammad Ali intro

by David Remnick, New Yorker Magazine

 

I remember Cassius Clay. I saw him fight on TV when I was in military service, and disliked him for avoiding the draft. Although I disliked him, I enjoyed watching him fight.

I had planned to write something about the man, but I found an article written by David Remnick of the New Yorker that would make anything I might write look like a first grader just learning to write the alphabet. If you would like to read it, here is the link:

He was a good man. I will miss him.
