Driving Muhammed Ali

Ernest Pough. If you have showed up at any events in Uptown Columbus, you've probably seen this fellow with his video camera faithfully capturing the life of our city. Something would feel amiss if we did not see him at an event but how many of us know he is a retired Taxi Cab driver who met some pretty exciting people over the years!

Do you have any stories from your Taxi Driver years?

" Do I?" he laughed, "I met some pretty big stars... Barbara Eden who played in "I Dream of Jeannie", and Patty Duke", he reached excitingly for his wallet and pulled out these two photos " Muhammed Ali and Evander Hollifield"

"I met 'em all. The good, the bad, and the ugly! But I loved getting to know the people!.... I really do love people" he reflected after a short pause.
