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.
