Muhammad Ali celebrates his 65th birthday

His body is ravaged by Parkinsons, but they say his mind is still sharp and he still has his wit. I loved him for many reasons. A black man that said what he thought. A man, that although he fought for a living, refused to fight in Vietnam. I love the fact that they took his title and he won it back. But all those rope a dopes took their toll on his body..and its so sad. I hope he is happy and content with his life and his fight against Parkinson's will be another one that he wins.

Happy Birthday Champ! You were the greatest of them all.

He was a good man when it wasn't cool to be a mouthy black man against the war.
