I have been a fan of your publication from the beginning, but you have truly outdone yourself with the March/April issue. I have known Muhammad Ali in passing. Once I had dinner with a small group including Muhammad at the Watergate in Washington. We were there to testify before a congressional committee. During the dinner, the champ disappeared: he was in the kitchen visiting with the help. An experience I will never forget.
