    Chappaqquidick? Yes. But is also carries the smell of the Salem witch trials. In order to determine if a person accused of witch craft was guilty, they tied them up and threw them in the water. If they floated, they were guilty and were burned at the stake. If they drowned they were innocent. How's that for a Catch-22?

    Mr. Kennedy knows a thing or two about drowning, unfortunately for Mary Jo.

    Caught the irony. Bet Kennedy never will.
