Journalist Al Smith Writes Autobiography

On the many Friday nights Al Smith hosted the public-affairs TV show Comment on Kentucky, he regularly took reporters who were guests on the show to dinner afterward and regaled them with his life stories. Smith, who will turn 85 on Jan. 9, has compiled many of those stories in a new book, Wordsmith: My Life in Journalism.
