Unifying (June)

The Greatest died this June. If you, like me, grew up uninfluenced by boxing culture, you still had to figure out the man who had been Cassius Clay, and his poetry. He did something very unusual with the ego. Quote: “Asked by the 1975 graduating class at Harvard University, where he delivered the occasional address, to recite a poem, he said, "Me? Whee". Like many of the stories that surround Ali, the shortest poem in the English language took flights of meaning, with some claiming he did not say "whee" but "we" to demonstrate the unity of the human race.”
