Sen. Edward Kennedy's hometown paper, the Boston Globe, seems to be preparing for the end of the Teddy Kennedy era. Editors and reporters are putting the finishing touches on a mostly glowing biography of the liberal lion. Ted Kennedy, Scenes from an Epic Life ($28), is due out March 3. We've seen a copy, and it is a walk through modern Democratic history from Kennedy's viewpoint, featuring many Kennedy clan shots. The 208-page book devotes just two pages of words and two of pictures to the tragic 1969 Chappaquiddick accident in which Mary Jo Kopechne died after Kennedy's car flipped into a Martha's Vineyard channel.
