Peanut, I agree that some of Ali's antics were annoying. Just for the record, butterflies do not, repeat do not float. I do admire Ali's anti-war stand and his refusal to register for the draft. I'm about as anti-war as you'll ever find and that is something I can totally support.

It was very sad to see Ali's health deteriorate and the fact that he suffered by his estimation some 29,000 blows to the head/brain.

I loved it when on February 18, 1964 Ali got to play with the Beatles. Sonny Liston missed out on the treat of a lifetime, but Ali wisely took advantage of some photo ops with the Fabs.
With a love like that, you know you should be glad, yeah, yeah, yeah!-- Beatles, 1963

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind. -- George Harrison, 1966
