    This was during the time that Ole' Teddy had lost alot of his family and was drinking a bit heavy. One would assume he was drinking the night he drove his car off the road killing his passenger.

    "Ole Teddy" loses a lot of points with me through being a staunch supporter of republicanism, but that's another story. Did he go to jail for manslaughter, or whatever the offence is called in the US?

    No, I don't think so. Which is what raises the hair on the backs of some.

    Here is a little more info for you eurs

    Source: Wikipedia

    After a party at Chappaquiddick on Martha's Vineyard on July 18, 1969, Kennedy drove away with Mary Jo Kopechne as a passenger in his 1967 Oldsmobile Delmont 88. Kopechne was a secretary and "boiler room" girl who had previously worked for the 1968 Presidential campaign of Kennedy's late brother, Senator Robert F. Kennedy. Kennedy made what he claims to have been a wrong turn, onto an unlit road that led to Dike Bridge (also spelled Dyke Bridge), a wooden bridge angled obliquely to the road. Kennedy drove off the bridge; the car plunged into tide-swept Poucha Pond (at that location a channel) and landed upside down under the water. Kopechne died; according to the medical examiner, she drowned. Kennedy claims he tried several times to swim down to reach Kopechne, then rested on the bank for several minutes. He returned on foot to the Lawrence Cottage where the party attended by Kopechne and other "boiler room" girls had occurred. His cousin Joseph Gargan and party co-host Paul Markham then returned to the pond with Kennedy and tried to rescue Kopechne. All involved failed to use the telephone at the Lawrence Cottage to call the police for help. Kennedy discussed the accident with several people, including his lawyer, before he was contacted by the police. The next morning July 19, 1969, a science teacher and a 15 year-old boy fishing discovered Kennedy's car. Police Chief Dominick Arena called Kennedy from the house nearest the bridge. Kennedy was given the news that his mother's car had been involved in a fatal accident. Kopechne's body was discovered by diver John Farrar. Farrar observed that a large amount of air was released from the car when it was righted in the water, he also noted that the trunk when opened was remarkably dry. These observations and others have led some to believe that Mary Jo Kopechne had not drowned but suffocated in an air pocket within the car.

    The incident quickly blossomed into a scandal. Kennedy was criticized for driving drunk, for failing to come to Kopechne's aid, for failing to summon help, for contacting not the police but his lawyer first, and for failing to report the accident to the authorities. Because of a lack of evidence other than Kennedy's own word, allegations persist that he did not try to save Kopechne, and that he intentionally turned onto the road crossing the bridge going to the beach in order to have sex with her.

    Kennedy entered a plea of guilty to a charge of leaving the scene of an accident after causing injury. He received a sentence of two months in jail, which was suspended. An Edgartown grand jury later reopened the investigation but did not return an indictment.

    Kennedy's critics and political enemies question whether justice was served in this case. Rumors still circulate of a conspiracy by Kennedy and his family to alter his driving record to obviate charges of negligent homicide, and to influence the Edgartown grand jury. Some people question his description of his escape from the car, because of his back troubles remaining from his 1964 airplane accident. Though claiming to be injured, Kennedy swam a second larger body of water after the accident to return to his hotel room as the ferry was closed for the night.

    Hobbes -- I've been studying all these Frapper maps looking for your hideout -- but it seems you've gone to ground -- do you know something that I don't ? (but of course... no need to go there ... )

    (btw, if I initiate an historical thread -- something along the lines of great tyrants of the 20th century maybe -- will you be around for it ??)

    I've been lurking on the forums, but I have been hit so hard at work and on the road so much, that I haven't had time to post much. It will slow down again in a couple more weeks....so don't fear, I will be back.

    Did anyone see SNL skit on Bush's pick? It was something like this:

    Cheney: "But no one knows her stance on abortion Mr. President."

    Bush: "Well I don't either. Lucky for us it was a false alarm."
    ROOTING for WebOS makes me more sympathetic to Cubs fans.
