Word arrives that my old friend and colleague Stephen Steed
is coping with severe complications from an aneurysm in his leg and friends have set up an account to help with medical expenses.
Stephen, who worked with me years ago at the Arkansas Gazette and whose communications roles since included a stint as information officer for the Arkansas House, was on the cusp of beginning anew his work as a daily news reporter when the medical problems arose. He's been hospitalized for several weeks.
An account to help him has been set up at gofundme.
He's helped many in his day. Now's a chance to return the favors.
