What an honor!  On Monday night U.S. Representative Thaddeus G. McCotter of Michigan’s 11th District recognized Dick Purtan on the House floor commemorating Dick’s retirement.  Dick said, and we quote:  “I am humbled and grateful to Rep. McCotter for his incredibly gracious remarks”.  However Dick was really moved by Vice President Joe Biden, who said of his retirement, and we quote:  “Wow, Dick’s retiring…This is a  big #@*! deal!”  Really.
