    Muhammad Ali wrote to the Kopechnes 50 years ago

    Dear Mr. Kopechne, assert yourself in the interests of the good name of your daughter. Get yourself a good lawyer and sue that no good son of a bitch, Edward M. Kennedy, for everything he’s got,” Ali wrote.

    Sarah Sanders doesn't often mop the White House Press Corp Floor...but when she does, she uses Jim Acosta.

    There is no American free press. They're bought and paid for.

    you know... you may be right. no autopsy. it was said she was being driven to the ferry....but she left her purse and keys behind. Women don't do that. not both.

    And then cremated to cover her up her pregnancy. Catholics didn't do cremation then.

    I am not sure why this is news at this stage of the game, but I am not surprised. After all, the Kennedy family power and wealth started in crime.

    john kennedy would be considered conservative and fascist by the new democrats.

    I dug down to find the actual letter. It is exactly that, a letter from Muhammad Ali. Wow that she held onto it for all this time, and only released it after Ali died to save him notoriety.
    I think it was a very nice thing to do for Mary Jo's family.

    its news now because kennedy is dead and can't be held accountable. it will be forgotten quickly because it is old news. The media won. Kennedy won...but it also raises the question about how she really died. What looked at the time like just plain lack of consideration, empathy, sympathy for another life....now has the spectre of something more sinister. At least for me. and i'm not all that out of the ordinary as far as American thinking goes.

    Certain families of note are doing the same thing now: squelching information until it's too late to do anything. The Kennedys escaped prosecution for their crimes and the Clintons are doing the same now. There is no justice for the very rich. None.
