You can not be from the D, (big or little) and not have a love of Motown music. It is in our blood. Barry Gordy, the Supremes, Smokey Robinson...the list goes on and on. In this little house, history was made. If you love this music, you must make this a place to visit.
Detroit's Mark Twain Library, pictured, was closed in 1996 for renovations and never reopened. what a damn shame, they could at least have packed the books off to other libraries or overseas to something like the African Library Project! It's a mystery to me as to why this was not done!
Average police response time is about 10 minutes. It is about 17 minutes in Detroit. Detroit has strict gun regulations guys. How are my odds if I have to wait 17 minutes for the police to arrive after I hear a man break into my house?
