To mark the passing of Senator Ted Kennedy I was going to rekey some portions of the chapter on Chappaquiddick from Donkey Cons, because reading it a couple years ago had a strong effect on me, not having known the details – and I assume many others are ignorant as well. However … not in this lifetime. I am just too busy lately.

But almost as effective is DK co-author Stacy McCain’s recent post, so go check it out here .

UPDATE: Via Ace is this important read.

UPDATE II: And to get a measure of the man: “One of his favorite topics of humor was Chappaquiddick.”
