'Blest if I believe such a Poll Parrot as you was ever learned to speak!'

Muhammad Ali has died.
I met him once, at a party for the release of the film When We Were Kings. In my now rather long life, I never met a person with more presence than him. There was a dignity and a power about him that, even in his state of decline at that point was beyond anything I ever encountered. It was almost hard to believe that he was a real person.
At one point, he was said to be the most famous person in the world. Well, we must move on without him.
