  1. I presume Mary could not be reached for comment.

  2. Not only that, but with a nice stipend from the Kennedys, Mary Jo's body could not be reached for an autopsy.

  3. But she does vote a straight democrat ticket every election.

  4. I only regret that Teddy can no longer hear those words in his head.
    Though, maybe he can. I'm no expert on Hell. Brilliant, Proof!

  5. Thanks. Thinking back to that time, here was an authority figure, whom a great many of us believed had negligently caused a woman's death, driving on an expired license, leaving the scene of an accident, with more thought of his own career than the possibility of saving Mary Jo's life, and he walked away with a mere legal slap on the wrist.


    Many of us were, and still are to an extent, outraged over this injustice, yet no one rioted or marched or burned down the court house. The closest Teddy Kennedy ever came to justice for what he did, other than his loss of reputation, was that he was denied the presidency, and we were preserved from having to live under his odious rule.

    Maybe we should have worn "White Lives Matter", or "Girls' Lives Matter" t-shirts?

  6. Well said, Brother. I was only a kid then, but I'm still traumatized by the sheer magnitude of the injustice of that event. I still believe that America needed to see Teddy in prison for his behavior that night. The State of Massachusetts would have survived.

  7. Mary Jo would have been 74 this year. She unfortunately died about a week before her 29th birthday. The son of a bitch who killed her for some reason was allowed 77 years.

    Mary Jo may you rest in peace!

  8. But, but, but Monte he was a Kennedy. I had just returned from Vietnam just a few weeks prior. That summer of 1969 was crazy. Sharon Tate murdered, first man on the moon and Mary Jo's death, plus all the DAMN hippie Vietnam Protests. Crazy times in America, but nothing compared to now.

  9. Proof, I've seen you post all over the conservative blog world and until tonight I did not know you had your own blog. Old Timer's Disease is my only excuse. I now have you Bookmarked.

  10. Amen to that, Bubba. I was only 6, but I remember that summer well. Not just because of the moon landing (which is why I'm at Langley AFB as I'm writing this now, BTW) but because the fucking hippie protests pissed me off. Even now, I see a fucking peace sign on some kid's shirt and I almost lose it. Idiots.

  11. Glad you stumbled in! You only missed 8,865 other posts. If you pace yourself, you can get caught up by New Year's!

  12. Welcome to the wonderful world of Google! Try searching her name or Chappaquiddick and see what you find.

  13. There was no autopsy, but speculation was, there was a pocket of air trapped with Mary Jo inside Teddy's Oldsmobile. No telling how long she lived in fear and panic, or whether or not she might have lived if the spineless Ted Kennedy had run to police and fire for help and not to his lawyers and political advisers.

  14. Thank ye kindly, sir! My only wish is that the Left would give me less material to work with.

  15. A qualifier is needed in the body of the photo for those people who don't know what she looks like.

  16. Good point. The image is getting more attention than I anticipated. I figured most people would read the headline here and make the connection.

  17. I know many people love to archive works of art and pass them around when lib's get out of line.

  18. I took your advice to heart and created a signature collection of shirts, which I added as an update.

  19. Yeah, but don't feel like you missed much, Jack. Most of those 8865 Proof posts were just collections of vintage Hollywood babe photos and outstanding cheesecake art. ... Shit! I've only seen a few years of it, myself! If you don't see me for a few months, I'll be in the archives! :D

  20. Or, as others have said, "I'll be in my bunk!"

  21. No one has more disdain for that fat dead bastard Ted Kennedy than me, but I think it's disrespectful to put Mary Jo Kopechne on a t-shirt. Our side should be better than that.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Just her name is on the shirt. Some things, and people, ought not to be forgotten.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I agree with that, just not the shirt.
