RIP Ken Norton

Former heavyweight champion Norton dies.

I remember some of these fights. One is tempted to wax nostalgic about a time when boxing wasn't quite such a freak-show, but given Mr. Ali's current condition, perhaps not.

And let's not forget Mr. Norton's (ahem) stellar movie performances in both Mandingo AND Drum, without which, we wouldn't have Django Unchained.
