Ted Kennedy: What defines a man, words or deeds?

At some stage one has to make a decision about life and people. For what does define a man or woman: words or deeds? Are there moments that define a man, possibly beyond the point of reversal to any other definition?

Well, you choose, and by your choice, you also define yourself.

Unfortunately, Mary Jo Kopechne, who was killed by Kennedy at the age of 28, could not be reached for her comment. I wonder if her ghost will ever be able to rest easily. Or maybe, if there is a hereafter, this is finally the time for a long-overdue reckoning.
