Joyce Carol Oates Begs to Differ on Ted Kennedy
Amid the accolades and outpouring of affection for the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, author Joyce Carol Oates ponders the senator's redemption after his questionable behavior on that night in 1969 when Mary Jo Kopechne died at Chappaquiddick bridge. She writes, "If one weighs the life of a single young woman against the accomplishments of the man President Obama has called the greatest Democratic senator in history, what is one to think?"
