Making a fool of Jack Dempsey by The Alamosa Courier and Emma Rogers was a sad day. This man was one of the greatest heavy weight boxers who was a champion to be admired by the world. This is the man who put Manassa, Colorado on the map, and people come from all over the country to see his birthplace. I donít see the reason that he was put in such a picture to be mad to look like a person that he was not. He would never been seen in such a way. It would make him ashamed to be seen in Manassa again.
(Editorís note: It was not the Courierís intention to discredit Jack Dempsey in any way.)
