Memorial service for Doug Smith, 74, retired associate editor of the Arkansas Times, will be at 1 p.m. Monday at Ruebel Funeral Home. It will be led by Marie Mainard O'Connell.  Burial will be at Roselawn Memorial Park. A guest book is now open at Ruebel's website

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations be made to the Central Arkansas Library System Foundation, 100 Rock St., Little Rock AR 72201, or the ACLU of Arkansas. 

Doug, whose career in newspapers at the old Arkansas Gazette and the Arkansas Times spanned 50 years, died Wednesday night. His long-time colleague and friend, Ernie Dumas, wrote most of the obituary that appeared here yesterday.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
