Default A rumor

Apparently just a rumor or hoax of some sort. Weird.

Default Yep, there sure are some sickos ...

Out there.

However we have to remember Ali is 71 now, he has put his body through all sorts of punishment and still reached an old age for a man of his generation. Heck he has outlived my dad and he was quite healthy, until he died !

CS we all have our demons and I am obviously working from third hand information, but I'm not sure the tone of your response reflects Ali's attitude to life. Everything I have read about the man suggests a positive attitude and an optimism. He seems to be a man who never looks back and tries to make the most of his admittedly limited capabilities. A real positive thinker IMHO.

Take care,
Neil.

Default That's what I implied

Ali has suffered greatly but always had the attitude of "the champ". As I said his guts and determination to.fight on are legendary. His positive attitude towards his illness is an example for all of us. And he could be quite ill, this disease doesn't kill quickly. Usually PD death occurs from loss of autonomic functions which can take years before they directly cause death. He may seem like he is on his way out according to his brother, who may have seen him on a "bad day", and reported his condition as terminal. He is still "the champ" to me, epitomizing the fight for which we must all put on our gloves and enter the ring, when our name is called by PD. cs

Apologies, this story came in the mainstream media here so am amazed and more than a little pleased to find it is not true.
