It was Sorensen

Returning to an ancient topic either hereabouts or chez barking_iguana:

Ron Kuby just said that Ted Sorensen is widely credited for Jack Kennedy’s ‘Ask not’ line, a part of the generally decent speech that I, unlike so many others, happen to dislike. (Superficially this is like TS Eliot claiming that Hamlet was a bad play, but more likely TS Eliot was a jerk.)

Previously I had said the line was written by Bill Ayers; apparently that is not the case.
