50 years ago today, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy left a party on Chappaquiddick Island near Martha's Vineyard with Mary Jo Kopechne, 28; some time later, Kennedy's car went off a bridge into the water. Kennedy was able to escape, but Kopechne drowned. pic.twitter.com/X7jCFJcyJw

I’ve been noticing a general trend in The Establishment press to write facts as tediously as possible.
By July 20, 2029, the AP tweet will read:
60 years ago at Chappaquiddick, events transpired.
Who knew self-driving cars existed 50 years ago?
