His wife is 28 years younger than Dingell.   She was 27 when she married Dingell.

In Detroit it isn't about who got the most votes.  Rather, it is about having the most vote counters on your side who will "massage" the returns in your favor.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

For his part, John Dingell insists that, while he uses a cane and wheelchair to get around, his health was not the key factor in his decision to step down. Rather, it was the decline of cooperation between the parties in the institution he grew up in.

No John, the real reason is you know, you dems won't take back the house anytime soon, there rendering you more irrelevant!

Yes, and no.  I was taking a class a couple years ago and we had a Constitutional attorney addressing us and that question came up about Detroit and Chicago being so much alike.  He said he would rather be in Chicago because no matter how corrupt they are at least some of the money gets back to the public in forms like parks, recreation, festivals, etc.  All a person has to do is visit the two cities and he/she will see the difference very plainly.

I've been suggesting Detroit give the buildings to Al Qaeda to practice bomb making.  When they are destroyed Detroit picks up the debris and recycles it.  Its a win/win. :silly:
