Hey FReepers !!! Just a reminder !!
The 35th anniversary of the death of Mary Jo Kopechne is July 19th, 2004. It's time to send Teddy some anniversary cards!!
Senator Ted Kennedy 315 Russell Senate Office Building Washington, D.C., 20510
Senator Ted Kennedy 2400 JFK Building Bston. MA., 02203
I think it would so very appropriate for ALL FReepers to let Teddy know that WE remember. He deserves it !!
MAIL THOSE ANNIVERSARY CARDS TODAY !!!
Got an email address for the fat, drunken murderer? I want to flood his office's inbox with e-cards. I wouldn't waste a penny of my money on that libera-demokkkRAT scumbag, but an e-card? Heck, I think several thousand are possible.
Maybe we can get John Edwards to channel the children she never had ... let's see, the oldest one might be in his or her late twenties or early thirties, Mary Jo would have one or two young grandchildren to play with ...
Senator Ted Kennedy, Martha's Vinyard, MA will work.
OMG! That's sick! Funny, but sick! ;-)
:checking underneath tee shirt: His puppies are bigger than mine.
Like a bridge over troubled water...."
Ted took a shower but mary jo prefered to wash up on shore.
Is this where the Oldsmobile Commander and the Hero of Chappaquiddick gets to lecture us again on morals?
It's an upside down place at times.
Hey, Hey, Teddy K, How Many Secretaries Did You Drown That Day?
I just sent my letter. Thanks for the e-mail address.
Dear Senator Kennedy,
As July 19th approaches, I remember all too well what happened on that day 35 years ago. I would like an explanation of your actions. I'm sure the Kopoechnes feel the same way. How can you possibly set a moral tone in Washington with your immoral actions? Every time I see you on a stage next to Senator Kerry, I can't listen to a word he says. I only think of that girl dying alone in that car.
On Monday, July 19th, 2004, it will have been 35 years since your "unfortunate accident" with Mary Jo Kopechne. I'm sure you'll want to call her family and offer your condolences.
Oh, and HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!! Drink one for me, will ya?

A Profile in Cowardice
Ted Kennedy, the accident, and the cover-up http://www.ytedk.com/chapter5.htm Ted Kennedy's Driving Record:
- Ted Kennedy had a record of serious traffic violations. Their nature formed a pattern of deliberate and repeated negligent operation. Particularly bothersome was a June, 1958 conviction for "reckless driving."
- On March 14, 1958, Deputy Sheriff Thomas Whitten had been on routine highway patrol outside Charlottesville, Virginia, when an Oldsmobile convertible ran a red light, sped off, then cut its tail lights to elude pursuit. A license check revealed the car belonged to Edward M. Kennedy, a 26-year-old law student attending the University of Virginia. Kennedy had previously been fined $15 for speeding in March 1957.
- Whitten was on patrol at the same intersection a week later, he testified, "And here comes the same car. And to my surprise, he did exactly the same thing. He raced through the same red light, cut his lights when he got to the corner and made the right turn." Whitten gave chase. He found the car in a driveway, apparently unoccupied. Looking inside, he discovered the driver, Teddy Kennedy, stretched out on the front seat and hiding. Whitten issued a ticket for "reckless driving; racing with an officer to avoid arrest; and operating a motor vehicle without an operator's license (Mass. registration.)" - Kennedy's attorneys were able to win numerous postponements, but eventually he was convicted on all charges and paid a $35 fine. Court officials never filed the mandatory notice of the case in the public docket, however, and Kennedy's name had not appeared on any arrest blotter. Instead, a local reporter discovered the case when he spotted 5 warrants in Kennedy's name in a court cash drawer.
- Three weeks after his trial, Ted Kennedy was caught speeding again, and still operating without a valid license.
- In December 1959, Kennedy was stopped again for running a red light and fined $10 and costs. In Whitten's view, "That boy had a heavy foot and a mental block against the color red. He was a careless, reckless driver who didn't seem to have any regard for speed limits or traffic ordinances."
- The offenses in Virginia had occurred on Ted Kennedy's Massachusetts driver's license, but mysteriously neither the Registry of Motor Vehicles nor the office of probation in Cambridge had any record of the out-of-state convictions. Had it been revealed at the inquest, the Senator's history of negligence and reckless driving would have been further evidence to support a charge of manslaughter in the Chappaquiddick accident.

I am absolutely amazed at the power of this group. I am so glad I found this site. I hope you keep running that message so when people check in they see it.
I met a guy the other day who's parents were at the party Teddy went back to after the accident. They said he gave no hint whatsoever that it had happened.
