The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith was hoodwinked today, hornswoggled and duped by those he trusted, and made to play the fool.  No small amount of face was lost, and some see Smith’s reputation as irrevocably sullied, his character besmirched, and his good name forever tarnished.  As a further indignity, Tony Danza has stopped taking his calls.
