38 Years Ago Yesterday...

...while Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins were hurtling through space toward the moon, Ted Kennedy was also hurtling through space off the Dyke Bridge from Chappaquiddick Island.

If I were a congressman I would nominate poor Mary Jo Kopechne for a Congressional Medal of Honor. Her death was not in vain; it kept Ted out of the White House.

With three 24 hour cable news networks, Ted would never have survived this incident today. The clan Kennedy was better able to manage a compliant media.
