Saturday links — A famous Husky policitican retiring

I’m realizing I was negligent yesterday in not passing along the news of the retirement of longtime U.S. Rep. Norm Dicks.

Before he turned to politics, Dicks was a football player at UW, letting on the 1961 and 1962 teams. He was also on the 1960 team that beat Minnesota to win the Rose Bowl (this story from the UW alumni magazine a few years ago had some details on his football career). He is also the uncle of Dan Dicks, who played OL for the Huskies from 2001-03.
