"I ain't got nothing against them Vietcong."

I remember on the eve of the first Ali-Frazier prize fight, everyone -- and I mean everyone -- took a side.  You were for Ali or for Frazier.  I don't know of any cultural event (it was way more than a mere sporting event) in which that's been the case.  They were proxies for our societal chasm of the time.

Rest in Peace.
