ASK NOT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU- ASK WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRYted sorensen, john kennedy's great speech writer, friend and adviser, died today. i was acquainted with his niece through friends, and i saw him give a long eloquent funny toast at her wedding- in verse! a year or so ago i saw him at ted kennedy's wake at the kennedy library. i was one of the 60 thousand average people who spontaneously appeared to pay respects, and i recognized ted sorensen among the many close family friends who were there. i think this is he to the left of the ballerina? on the right is bobby kennedy junior.
