Podiatric College Cites PBA Head

The New York College of Podiatric Medicine gave Patrolmen's Benevolent Association President Patrick J. Lynch an honorary Doctor of Human Letters "for his support and dedication to the college" at an annual awards dinner May 29.

"As far as cops go, they have a lot of issues relating to their feet, with their walking the beat and all," said a college spokesman when asked why Mr. Lynch was selected for the honor. "So he's someone who shares the same concerns and values as the college."
