Hey, Barty — what a great piece, that brings back memories. My Dad was a Golden Glove boxer out of UCLA and as such was a big boxing fan. And so I grew up watching those bouts on TV. Muhammad Ali (Cassius Clay, I still remember) was a huge family favorite. Growing up, I became aware that his boxing acumen was a product of him being an exceptional human being, including his courageous stance about the Vietnam War. Thank you for helping to preserve his memory and heritage.
