Ted Kennedy is dead in Hyannis Port today. I was honestly surprised ABC news even remembered Chappaquiddick, if even tangentially. But someone did.
Down here in south Texas they get all emotional when someone dies. “Don’t speak ill of the dead!” they’ll scream in your face. The guy could be Adolf Hitler, or Ted Bundy, or Charles Manson. But God forbid you should speak ill of a dead person.
Even Ted Kennedy.
So I won’t speak ill of Ted Kennedy since I don’t want to be screamed at by any outraged abuelitas.
I’m just wondering . . . who told Mary Jo Kopechne’s parents he’s dead?
