My uncle...

There's been a lot of coverage about the death of Circuit Judge Jim Hudson.  Steve Harrelson has compiled a list of related articles on his blog.  The Democrat-Gazette also had an article in which Hudson was praised by pols like Mike Ross and Blanche Lincoln.  A lot of you probably remember him as a great prosecuting attorney and an honest, fair judge.  I remember him as my uncle Jimmy.  The guy who would play all-time quarterback (or pitcher as the game demanded) all day long at family gatherings when we were kids.  He was a good man, and he will be missed.    (That's us in the photo above.  He brought me along to a Bill Clinton rally in 1982, probably unbenknownst to my parents.  We were both a lot younger then.) 

Funeral services will be at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow at the First United Methodist Church at 400 East 6th Street in Texarkana.
