An anniversary missed
Over the weekend I forgot to post a reminder of an anniversary. On 18 July 1969 Mary Jo Kopechne's dead body was discovered inside an overturned car belonging to Senator Edward "Ted" Kennedy under water in a tidal channel on Chappaquiddick Island, Massachusetts. You can read all about the scandal on the web but not on the BBC website, they have ignored the 40th anniversary of her death; presumably this is unconnected to their love for a Democratic politician.
