Petition asks President Obama to honor the Beatles' 50th anniversary

A new petition on the White House website created Jan. 30 by this column asks President Barack Obama to honor the Beatles on the 50th anniversary of their arrival in the U.S.

The title of the petition reads, “We petition the Obama Administration to recognize the Beatles' 50th anniversary of their arrival in the U.S.on 2/9/1964.They changed our lives with their music.” The petition text says, “President Obama, in a speech honoring Paul McCartney, said the Beatles "blew the walls down for everybody else. In a few short years, they had changed the way that we listened to music, thought about music and performed music forever. They helped to lay the soundtrack for an entire generation -- an era of endless possibility and of great change." That continues to be true today. They deserve to be honored by the president for the wonderful music and the positive effects their music has had on America and the world.”

There isn't much time before the 50th, but if everyone spreads the word, we can get 100,000 signatures, the required amount, and get the president to issue a proclamation.

We hope you'll sign it.
