Chapaquitic

A short note for all those burning up the intertubes looking for "Chapaquitic".

The word you are looking for is "Chappaquiddick". Yes, I know, strange spelling, but that's the way the name of the place looks after we've turned it from the Algonquian language into the English alphabet.

Now you know the spelling, you'll be able to find out more of the story of Mary Jo Kopechnik. A sad tale but an apposite one for the current times.
