Many happy returns to Mohammed Ali who celebrates his 70th birthday today. I'm not a boxing fan but I recognise a great athlete, and a great poltical activist, when I see one.
Ali campaigned against war in Vietnam before it became fashionable at great personal and professional expense. His epic fights against George Foreman and Joe Frazier in the 70's rank amoung the best ever.
Was he the "Greatest"? Hard to argue against it!
