Thoughts on Chappaquiddick @ 40

With all the discussion about the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, Quin Hillyer of The American Spectator (where some of my articles have appeared) notes that no one, not even National Review, has saw fit to mention the 40th anniversary of Chappaquiddick.

You know the incident that claimed the life of Mary Jo Kopechne but did not claim the political career of Senator Edward Kennedy.

Of course, much of it has to do with the fact that Kennedy is dying of brain cancer. Then again if Kennedy were in perfect health I don't think the MSM would be eager to revisit Chappaquiddick.

Pardon me for saying it. But as far as the MSM is concerned Chappaquiddick is water under the bridge.
