Smith is married to Sherry Stern, the LA Times editor who told syndicated columnist Amy Alkon not to bother ever contacting the paper again

We are not interested in adding any others, so I’d like to save you the trouble from writing us in the future. We’re quite content. Additionally, we are not in the market for writers, so again, there’s no need for you to continue to write us.

As Smith has taken the Register’s buy-out, will the Times be needing his unquie talents? Oh, wait, she already brought back La Cucaracha.
