The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith was all smiles today from the moment he awoke until he retired for the night. Everyone he met was greeted with a grin, and his upbeat demeanor caught many of his associates off-guard. By day’s end, his constantly beaming visage had polarized onlookers. “That guy is really starting to creep me out,” said Betty, 25. “Is he selling something?” asked Dan, 29, “he must be selling something.” Others disagreed: “No,” said William, 28, “I think he’s just happy.”
