Justice for Mary Jo

On July 19, 1969, the drunken Massachusetts Senator-for-Life Teddy Kennedy drove his car off a bridge near Chappaquiddick. Saving himself, and leaving behind Mary Jo Kopechne to die, Senator Kennedy didn't even bother to report the incident until someone found the car in Poucha Pond the next morning.

Senator Kennedy didn't serve a day in jail; and the manslaughter of Mary Jo Kopechne still screams for justice, and Senator Kennedy, now an influential senator, has yet to pay for his crime.

I developed a sidebar widget that counts up the days that have passed since the incident at Chappaquiddick; so that we should never forget what happened that fateful day, and that we are reminded of the need for Senator Ted Kennedy to answer for what he did.

If you'd like this widget, please email me at psycmeistr at fastmail dot fm.
