Ted Kennedy after killing Mary Jo Kopechne, edited for length- But tonight I am free to tell you what happened and to say what it means to me.When I left the party, around 11:15pm, I was accompanied by one of these girls, Miss Mary Jo Kopechne. Mary Jo was one of the most devoted members of the staff of Senator Robert Kennedy.Little over one mile away, the car that I was driving on an unlit road went off a narrow bridge which had no guard rails and was built on a left angle to the road. The car overturned in a deep pond and immediately filled with water.
Democratic Senator Roberty Byrd spoke publically today about the bad news of Ted Kennedy's brain tumor.
As aired on many live news broadcasts, Byrd actually said ,"My dear, dear friend, dear friend, Ted Kennedy. ... Dear All Powerful and Omnipotent God....Keep Ted here for us and for America. ... Ted, Ted, Ted. My dear friend. I love you and miss you." — Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va
