MLB is commemorating this by having all players wear number 42 on their uniforms (without players names). 42 was retired several years ago but players with that number were allowed to keep it. 42 is on the wall in Fenway Park along with those Red Sox players with 10 or more years on the team who made it into the Hall.
A few weeks ago when I went to a planning meeting in the Cambridge High School this quote of something he said was on the wall:
I'm not concerned with your liking or disliking me... All I ask is that you respect me as a human being.I think that would be pretty good advice to follow for lots of people.
Too bad that Obama wears number 44. Now here is a far-fetched thought: Grover Cleveland wore 22 and 24 so if presidential numbers could be reused and if you called Ford 37r because he was an unelected president then Obama would be 42.
