R.I.P. Muhammad Ali

Ali passed tonight.

When we faced trouble in the Army, we had a saying: "If only Cassius Clay were here!" Then we'd laugh like hell.

A fellow linguist's father was a Louisville businessman who was part owner of a young pro boxer. Cassius Clay. What a ridiculous name. This kid is going places, the father wrote the son. What a concept! We'd laugh some more. Yes, Cassius Clay kept us in stitches.
