And also the right to blather on and on at the Senate telling lies. The wrong person died in that crash.

That Ted Kennedy was allowed to escape justice....

He may have escaped man's justice, but GOD will dispense real justice to correct that situation one day soon.

I'm sure you're right about God dispensing real justice...but speaking for myself, I'd love to have seen some real justice dispensed here on earth.

Namely, a jail sentence and the loss of his Senate seat.

Every time Teddy says anything in public about the actions of anyone else, he should be reminded of this incident.

He lied repeatedly, and Mary Jo died a slow torturous death while the Senator discussed with his lawyers how he could get away with her murder.

And Kennedy is no less arrogant and "holier than thou" now as he was back then. In fact, he may be more.

Is there any sort of service for Mary Jo at the site? Couldn't we get a Republican senator, in association with Mothers Against Drunk Drivers, to propose making it into a national monument?

*** Kennedy fled the scene of the accident and received a suspended sentence of two months and one year's probation.**


I know someone, now deceased, who received 3 years in prison for leaving the scene of an accident that was not even his fault!

And as a commentator said years ago,
"Do you want a person in the presidential driver's seat who cannot hit a 10 foot wide bridge with an 8 foot wide car?

And that Sen. Kennedy's car didn't drive off a bridge. Sen. Kennedy DROVE his car off a bridge, killing Mary Jo Kopechne as a result.

The captain of the Edgartwon rescue squad was on WRKO for the 25th anniversary. He gets audited by the IRS every year.

Another one of those Dimo spiritual leaders. What rocks do they look under for the likes of Kennedy and Clintoon.

Somehow in his mind he is an upstanding guy fighting for the rights of the less fortunate.
I on the other hand see him as a phony, a killer and a drunk.
Forever I will think poorly of the people of Mass. for continuing to put his sorry butt back into office repeatedly.

That is the sole confort I have in this case as well as in the OJ Simpson case. You can't run from God!

Seems to me the fellow should complain about harrassment from the IRS.
