Some pundits and reporters seem to be falling all over themselves searching for adjectives to describe Ali – now that he has died.
The entire shooting match boils down to a man doing what he liked, as he could, as often as he could.
However. . .
I’m reminded that a deal is made of he being a draft dodger.
I’m also reminded that John Wayne was a draft dodger and wasn’t imprisoned. Wayne’s punishment was creating the ten war movies for the government. Of course, not ten were made to support the war effort. One can see what the movies actually did for Waynes career.
Ali went on and did what he did, eventually.
Both men had a common trait, other than not wishing war, both were good people inside. That characteristic came through to folks about them and earned admiration and in some cases, veneration.
A pity, in a way, our pug nastic presidential candidates can’t show some of that in public.
Both will be missed for those who remember.
Seg: The lady without hands and feet. No update on her published effort. I spent an hour trying to find information on it, but nothing was working in my favor this morning. Will continue looking.
Seg: I had a man over to examine the poison ivy along the back fence. He agreed that it was serious, but felt if I used 2, 4D I shouldn’t have a problem with killing the trees. Just spray in the mornings before the dew dries was best.
We sprayed about twenty yards along the fence line, finding something he called saducu (whatever the heck that is). He assured me that it is as bad as ivy for being intrusive and that it looks like Rose of Sharon. Stiwickers, but a great deal more viney. It will take over a fence row in a heart beat.
2,4D can control that also.
Seg: And finally, the dog is getting better. He has almost recovered from hurting his front leg. Sucker is tough as nails. Never complained
