Drawn to arrogance

Dennis Johnson was an arrogant man, an ass even. He treated his assistant like a menial, he saved his attention for the powerful and influential in the room, he practically raised writers from infancy, he made money at publishing poetry and he generally electrified any space he occupied.

Dennis is dead at 58. (http://www.bookcentre.ca/news/dennis_johnson_19522011)

I admired him greatly. He built a press that was incomparable in it’s milieu, he championed the industry and he was very, very successful in an arena that chewed up and spat out presses annually. How do you eulogized a man like this? How do you celebrate his magnificence?

I’m going to raise a glass.

To Dennis… I’ll grab some cash at the ATM for you and meet you at the bar.
