I Gotta Dance to Keep from Crying

Want to pick up the latest album from Motown legend and onetime SXSW keynote speaker Smokey Robinson? Then cruise on out to your nearest Cracker Barrel this Monday.

Yes, Cracker Barrel - the same Tennessee-based restaurant-and-country store chain that reportedly paid $8.7 million in 2004 to settle a slew of racial discrimination lawsuits.

“It’s time to change that imagery of Cracker Barrel,” Robinson says. “I’m very happy to be the one breaking that ground with them. It’s progress."

Indeed it is, Smokey. Now all they need to do is hire Harvey Fierstein as a spokesperson to begin patching things up with the gays.
