Republican delegate deals Ali a low blow

Continuing an odd theme of this blog, that early '70's sports figures were the greatest, I am appalled by the comments ("Ali takes a beating in House," 2/28/04) of Delegate Mark Cole about Muhammad Ali. It's the same kind of talk that mostly often gets used in Virginia to attack historical figures who were slaveowners or Confederate soldiers. I think Ali is a historical figure, like it or not.

Update - I toned this down a bit, in response to e-mails which pointed out correctly that the original was rude and unnecessary.
