    Thoroughly compelling and brutally honest about the myth of Ali as a great man of conscience as well as a deserved appreciation of Joe Frazier.

    Fighting the Creepers Chapter 3

    "That would be neat!" Hinder agreed. "Two's better than one! I've got a bone in my house you can borrow." <br>
    "Perfect." Hinder and Starch entered Hinder's house. Several patches of the floor had grass on them, and the walls were mixed beech planks and oak planks. It was a very crude house, but Hinder loved it. <br>
    "Here," Hinder said as she took a bone from her chest and placed it on the ground for Starch to get. "So, what will we need for this expedition?" <br>
    "Bones work great," Starch began, "but do you think we'll need a fence so the creepers can't get at us?" <br>
    "Good point." Hinder added the fencing to her pack. "I'll lure the creepers towards us, and then as they get nearer we'll hit them with our sticks until they die!" <br>
    Hinder suddenly added, "What about night? Then the spiders, skeletons, and zombies will be after us as well." <br>
    "We can make a small house," Starch replied desicivly. "With two holes on the sides so we can hit the creepers from within." <br>
    "We'd need..." Hinder trailed off. "53 blocks?" <br>
    "I got 55. Let's go with the higher number," Starch suggested, heading towards the door. <br>
    "Got it. Hang on, let me grab the wood." <br>
    When Hinder was ready, she and Starch set off South. When they got asafe distance away, Starch set up the house while the fence was managed by Hinder. <br>
    "Here I go," she murmered, dashing towards the spawning site. When a good distance away, she called, "Creepers! Come and get me!" <br>
    Five or so creepers obeyed, as well as a host of zombies that began to burn up shortly after. Hinder took a deep breath. "Game on."

    Floats like butterfly and stings everyone...

    An amazing piece of social/sports writing! Kram lands on Ali's butt especially often and stings his mythos as a Civil Rights hero/humanitarian. It is rare that a sport as old as boxing gets redefined, but Kram has done it. If you are interested in the 70s, race, or either of the contendahs here, go for it.
