I hate to beat a dead horse but....

This week does mark the 35th anniversary of Ted Kennedy's murder errr I mean accidental death(alledgedly) of Mary Jo Kopechne at the Chappaquiddick bridge. After a night of debauchery, Ted was driving down the road and drove his car off a bridge. He escaped with his life, but his passenger Mary Jo was not as lucky. She ended up drowning and Ted didn't report the incident to the authorities until the next morning. No one is really shocked that he beat the rap. After all, he is a Kennedy. I'm sure papa Joe made a few calls and made the whole thing go away. It's also ironic that on the 35th anniversary of the incident that the DNC is in Boston next week. Coincidence?
