Rep Dingell to Retire
A little good news out of DC today with the word that Congressman John Dingell (D-MI) is finally retiring. Dingell exemplified all that is wrong with our federal government. Career politicians fight for continual growth of government and he is the longest serving congressman at 60 years in office. We can add a touch of nepotism to his list of sins since he became a congressman when he basically inherited his daddy's district in 1955. Good riddance several decades too late! Disgustingly, his wife Deborah Dingell (born year before he was first elected to congress) is the early favorite to replace him.
