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.
