What others are saying about Glenn W. Smith’s DogCanyon.org
There are experienced progressive activists and there are insightful political writers. Glenn Smith is both, and he combines these skills with grace and abundant humor. Like Molly Ivins, he uses his colorful experiences in Texas to enlighten us all — no matter where we live. I’m ready to make Dog Canyon a regular stop on my cyber-travels.
Cyber-sage, Glenn Smith, puts the lie to the self-fulfilling prophecy that the Internet has given us all the attention spans of Chihuahuas. Engagement is a given with prose as lucid and lyrical as Smith’s. And fun. What other writer can tack effortlessly from Martin Buber, to John Donne, to scrotal asymmetry, to Looney Tunes, and then, ultimately, guide us all to an inspiration that shines through his every sentence, Chenrezig, the bodhisattiva of compassion?
I first met Glenn Smith in the 80’s when he was a crusading young journalist for the Houston Post. Since then we’ve spent a lot of time together in the trenches. He is in the finest, firmest, fearless tradition of Texas essayists like Molly Ivins. He has unmatched experience, a graceful pen (or pixel nowadays) and deep insights into the best and worst of us. I intend to be a regular visitor to Dog Canyon.
Glenn Smith is the rarest, and most valuable, of political animals. He’s not just savvy and a terrific writer, but he’s thoughtful, very well read, and deep. Depth isn’t the usual currency of political commentators, but it is what we so badly need. He’s been a political reporter, a campaign manager, a progressive operative, and a superb think tank analyst. There’s no one like him. I’ll be hanging out in Dog Canyon. Hope to see you there.
