Here is an idea, this is a large part of the music history that happened, try accepting that fact. And if it wasn't for them I don't think alot of the current redneck music of today would exsist!

Wow. Angry much? How do you know they aren't planning something else about Motown for black history month? Why does it have to be only ONE thing? And if they are such scum, then why are you reading the web site. Doesn't that make you sketchy at best?

oh sorry everyone, i forgot that it is becoming illegal to critisize anything relating to African Americans, MY BAD!!! i mean how else could have determined the outcome of the election. WHITE GUILT BE GONE!!!! no more excuses of why millions of blacks complaining about the Almighty Whitey and how they have ruined their lives and thrown every black male in jail on conspiracy charges. GUESS WHAT, those days are over now, affirmative action worked all the way to the White House. good luck black americans, NO MORE EXCUSES!!!

yes, i understand the article but my question is WHY?? is the story about the birthday of Mowtown? NO! so again what makes it news worthy? why not just write an article of "What Makes Water Wet". the newspapers are suppose to be about CURRENT news otherwise it should be called Barnes and Noble website. i can read and entertain myself learning about Mowtown there instead. i didnt say i mind reading about Mowtown, but this was not the proper forum. JOURNALISM IS DEAD, im sure you have all heard that recently and this article proves it.

Because it was January when the company was started 50 years ago. You do seem so angry. Why are you here if it makes you so unhappy? Why not move on to something more to your liking?

Good guess. Then again, I'm not the one trolling around on message boards on websites I profess to hate....on a Friday night. Sad. Pathetic. And deep down, you know it. That's why you are all sound and fury signifying nothing. You are trying to cover it all up.

It's never going to get better for you. This is it. Look around. That's all you will ever know or have. You will die alone and unloved.

And you know it.

That was cold blooded. I don't think I've ever seen anyone stop one of these racist message board terrorists so effectively. The more you read the more cruel it is. But Redneck had it coming he really did.

Why is this story so hard to find? It should be with the others.

Relax. It's just a trivia list. Save all this drama for the home page stories.

Writing mostly about fashion I get a lot of the response "why is this trivial stuff on a newspaper's website?"

All I can tell you is that while the internet seems to a nice fit for really specific channels of information, a general interest newspaper has to cover a wider range of topics.

Also, you might consider that a lot of the news websites, blogs and even TV channels actually get the "news" from newspapers and the only reason they do that is that we have the expansive staff to cover so many different kinds of stories.

And finally, you can always "click" on something else. It seems truly trivial to comment on the triviality of something you find trivial.....to me.
