I don’t do sports, but I do like the stories behind athletes.
Like Jack Johnson, the boxer. He’s a longtime interest of mine, probably because “The Great White Hope” came out when I was at an impressionable age.
I hadn’t paid any attention, however, to recent efforts to get Johnson a pardon so this Association Press story by Jim Litke was of interest.
I wish he would get the pardon. I don’t know why it wouldn’t happen. And soon.
