Today is Fat Tuesday, which is the day before the 40-day period where Catholics make personal sacrifices known as Lent.  This time of year is particularly special to 12th District Congresswoman Debbie Dingell.  She talks to WEMU's Patrick Campion how she and her family have celebrated Fat Tuesday over the years.
