A Dazzling Denver Pol

City Auditor Dennis Gallagher is a legendary Denver politician and a scholar of Latin and Greek. Each year he serves as Master of Ceremonies for a conference at Regis University on the Jesuit poet Gerard Manley Hopkins. Yesterday Gallagher gave an ecstatic, over-the-top reading of “Pied Beauty.” He brought a lemon and honey to the classroom, the better to make funny faces declaiming the words “swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim.” I suspect that if we all enjoyed what we do as much as Dennis Gallagher does, we could get elected to anything.
