Ali was willing to sacrifice the prime of his career to fight against being drafted into an unjust and incredibly unpopular war. Took balls.

Ali sacrificed nothing. Certainly not his life. He didn't want to join the military. I'm sure Elvis didn't. But he did. Ali was good at fighting. In a ring with gloves on. It doesn't take balls. It takes skill. What took balls was fighting. In Viet Nam.

Anyway, regardless of what you think of him, he was one of the 20th Century's most iconic public figures.

He was. He was the perfect lead-in from the tranquil 50s to the insane 60s. He played more lead
guitar for that era than Jerry Garcia.

"Truth is, I'd like to rumble with that sucker again -- beat him up piece by piece and mail him back to Jesus. ... Now people ask me if I feel bad for him, now that things aren't going so well for him. Nope. I don't. Fact is, I don't give a damn. They want me to love him, but I'll open up the graveyard and bury his ass when the Lord chooses to take him."

Bill Dyre in the LA Times had a great tribute in the paper today. No slavish, glassy-eyed
slobbering prose. A sober look at Ali, his career, and our fascination with him. He said he
was a fantastic boxer, but the greatest? No. But he told us so often we finally all just shrugged
and sort of just gave it to him.

Amid all the hyperbole surrounding His—sorry, his death, it was a refreshingly level-headed
tribute from a newspaper that lives, breathes, and eats PC and liberalism.
