40 Years Plus One Day
My dad called me Saturday morning to ask me if I remembered what happened 40 years ago today... I must admit my first response had to do with the moon landing and then it occurred to me...
Today is the 40th Anniversary of the death of Mary Jo Kopechne at the hands of Ted "Splash" Kennedy.
Thanks for the reminder, Pipo.
Oh, the humanity, especially when you consider that Splash still serves in the Senate after all these years and after all the water under that bridge.
Good Lord. What are the voters in Massachusetts thinking?
