The Greatest? Not anymore.

You know what? Screw Muhammad Ali. What happened to "I’m not going 10,000 miles from home to help murder and burn another poor nation simply to continue the domination of white slave masters of the darker people the world over. This is the day when such evils must come to an end"? Frankly, for him to stand up there and joke with Little George and receive praise from the same kind of people whose actions caused him to say those words about Vietnam don't even have the words. Maybe the Parkinson's and the adulation he's received over the last decade have gone to his head.

There's always a chance that he'll throw his medal in the Ohio River, I suppose. Let's not hold our breaths.
