RIP Ted Sorenson

I didn't realize he died yesterday, but he did.  He was the last of the Kennedy circle.  He was Kennedy's speechwriter, so we can give him credit for "Ask not what your country can do for you…." (although, as classy speechwriters do, Sorenson never took credit for the line).  He probably also ghost-wrote "Profiles in Courage", which won Kennedy the Pulitzer.
