Vengeance Is Mine

In yesterday's Spokesman there was an article about an interview with Joe Frazier. Normally, I wouldn't have anything to say about it but this one part caught my attention.

When it comes to his longtime foil, Frazier is sympathetic to the suffering Parkinson’s disease has caused [Muhammid] Ali. But as a Christian, Frazier said, he isn’t surprised by it, either.

“I’m sorry that he is the way he is, but I didn’t have too much to do with it. It was the good man above,” Frazier said. “Maybe I did have a little to do with it, but God judges, you know what I’m saying? We don’t have the power to judge that the man has above.”

So if you or anyone you know is suffering from Parkinson's disease, or quite possibly any affliction, Smokin' Joe didn't have too much to do with it. But according to his way of thinking, it's you're own fault.

I read the same article and it pretty well solidified the reason why Ali is still so very much loved and respected around the world and few outside of boxing remember Frazier.
