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?

what were they thinking, indeed?

Did ACORN exist back then? :-)

Wow. It's been that long! Yikes I feel old.

flawed messages require flawed individuals to present it. Teddly iconic of the liberal utopic dream of Camelot.

Z: Truth is they weren't thinking and ACORN was probably called something else back in the day.

Ananda Girl: You and me both.

DaBlade: Hearing about Camelot makes me want to puke.
