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.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
