The Times profiles Joe Frazier, and apparently Mike Tyson is endorsing political candidates in Maryland, and that isn't helping anyone.
The quote in the title is Smokin' Joe's response to Ali, who always said he was ugly. As he puts it, “Ali kept calling me ugly, but I never thought of myself as being any uglier than him.”

So then, how do we jump to the conclusion that "if Diddy has stuck around, it’s because the genre needs him"?
What? What has anyone who enjoys hip-hop "needed" about Diddy? The constant grandstanding? The complete lack of talent? Even wikipedia notes that he has "watered-down" hip-hop by sampling famous songs with mediocre rapping accompaniment. And from the list of incidents, you'd think he'd be in jail. But instead he's one of the wealthiest men in the music industry.
So why, exactly does the genre need Diddy? Anyone? Does hip-hop need "first-rate hustlers"?

If you're at all familiar with Public Enemy, you should catch about 50 different references in there. I'll get you started: "911 is a joke," and "don't believe the hype."
