Muhammed Ali is your grandpa’s media hero. Most people commenting on the web today didn’t know Ali had ever been alive. Is it any wonder they don’t care he’s dead? Same thing’s gonna happen to Neil Armstrong and how many others.
It’s not their fault. It’s hard to feel any immediacy about things that happened before you were born, maybe before your mom was born. No matter how important Ali was then, he’s just a ghost in a history book now. I don’t blame people for being more worked up about the Donald. He matters in their lives right now.
Thank you Muhammed Ali. You were the greatest, and the whole world was watching.
