I went to Mexico with the kids in the 1st week of January.  Good food, good weather and this was the view from our room.  Nuff said.

Happy Birthday Muhammed Ali

He's 70 years old today, and still one of the most famous people on the planet.  People love him and respect him, but most don't remember when he used to matter.  And he mattered a lot.  This Esquire cover dates from his amazing refusal to serve after being drafted by the US Army during the Vietnam War.  He was stripped of his title, sent to jail and damned by almost everyone.  He was widely hated as a threat to all manner of tradition (i.e. keeping the niggers down).  The system tried to kick the shit out of him.  They lost.

Edit:  They didn't really lose.  He won.  And he won with style.
