Tom Dodge's Dictionary


"Tom Dodge is the voice of Texas. He speaks for top dogs, underdogs, yellow dogs, and for all those who hold in their hearts a vision of Texas as a prairie paradise.  Tom Dodge is the John Henry Faulk of his day.  He has humor, heart, and wisdom, all of it of the earth."

Lee Cullum
Author of Genius Came Early,
political analyst on
the News Hour With Jim Leher
and columnist with
the Dallas Morning News


"We live in a time when it seems the only Texana we have is disappearing with the Marlborough Man.  Tom Dodge rises as a true Texas hero and preserves our heritage, our God given right to think different from other folks, hell, to think at all!  I for one am thankful for his insights into the real Texas way of thinking.  He's the only Greek scholar I know personally . . . and I miss the ol' goat."
