Why Pearl Harbor trumps the Beatles

Order Reprints

On Dec. 7, 1941, the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. Is that day more important than the death of Beatle John Lennon on Dec. 8, 1980?

In the history of our country, of course it is. That doesn't mean the events get equal -- or proportionate -- coverage in the press.

Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich honors the men and women who died at Pearl Harbor in his latest blog. He also gives credit to those who survived the bombing, including Olin Mott, owner of Olin Mott Tire Co.
