    This is not Android news, but I feel it deserves the Front Page..

    PHOENIX (AP) — Muhammad Ali, the magnificent heavyweight champion whose fast fists and irrepressible personality transcended sports and captivated the world, has died according to a statement released by his family. He was 74.


    Ali suffered for years from Parkinson's disease, which ravaged his body but could never dim his larger-than-life presence. He was hospitalized earlier this week.

    A towering figure in his prime, he still traveled and made appearances in his later years despite being muted by the thousands of punches he took during his remarkable career.

    He beat the invincible Sonny Liston, fought a string of thrilling fights with Joe Frazier and stopped George Foreman in the "Rumble in the Jungle" in Zaire. But he paid a terrible price for the estimated 29,000 punches he took to his head during a career that made him perhaps the most recognized person in the world.

    "I done wrestled with an alligator, I done tussled with a whale; handcuffed lightning, thrown thunder in jail; only last week, I murdered a rock, injured a stone, hospitalized a brick; I'm so mean I make medicine sick."

    Lost a legend. I never saw any of his fights live since he was before my time but all the YouTube videos are fun to watch.

    I could see an article about Tech stars deaths making the News page, but Ali? No...
    Someone has to say it. I come here to get away from pop news.

    The original post forgot to mention he was a convicted draft dodger, switched religions to justify dodging the draft, and became a member of the Nation Of Islam, following the teachings of Louis Farrakhan.

    He was definitely a gifted boxer but, because of the choices he made, I have no respect for him as a human being.

    You all have your right to your opinion.

    The Nation of Islam does not stop any member from joining the Armed Services! Never have. There are members in the service today fighting along Christians, other Muslims, and other Faiths. The only reason he did not fight in the war is below. By the way I am not a Muslim, I am a Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
