To the Point

There comes a time in every epoch when pragmatism simply evolves into extreme acquiescence and surrender to the forces of apathy and do-nothingness, a guarantor of the status quo in all of its easy, democratic criminality--its fortress of greed. You could line up all the pols in the U.S. in a straight row and examine them head to toe and not find a single man or woman capable of admitting, never mind ending, the corruption of their vocation--Buddy Dooley

Can you name the three iconic sports figures included on the cover of this album?

Give it a try before reading down the story for the answers.

You get bonus points from RBP if you can name everybody.

I had a few favorites amid the crowd when I bought the album, without permission, while running a grocery errand for me mum, who wanted to knock me head off afterward.

I'd forgotten who the athletes were until I looked at the cover closely and recognized Liston.  I didn't find the other two before reading the answer, nor did I recall they were in the picture.

Dylan, Brando and W.C. Fields always stuck out for me.
