For John, BLUF: History is mostly written by the Academics. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Today is the 68th Anniversary of Jackie Robinson becoming a major league baseball player. And a good thing it was. To honor him, and that event, all MLB players will wear number 42 today.
But, did you know that Mr Robinson was an OpEd writer for The New York Post. Let go in November 1960 for being too Republican. At the link is part of Mr Robinson's response, published in the New York Amsterdam News.
