Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., is celebrated by friends and colleagues on Capitol Hill in Washington, as he becomes the longest-serving member of Congress in history with his 20,997th day as a representative, Friday, June 7, 2013. A former chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee, Dingell, now 86, says he has no plans to retire as the representative of Michigan's 12th District that inclueds Dearborn and Ypsilanti. Rep. Dingell recalled wisdom passed on by his late father, Congressman John D. Dingell Sr., "It's not how long you serve; it's how well you serve." (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
