    Here's an article about Clancy with some personal comments, including a telling anecdote:

    One time, his publicist told Swanson that Clancy needed to listen to something to help him relax — and asked him to put on some Rush. Swanson ran to Strawberries next door, bought a copy of the band Rush’s greatest hits, and put it on the Booksmith’s sound system.

    The publicist approached Swanson again and said, “This isn’t quite what he had in mind — he likes to listen to Rush Limbaugh.”

    The owner of the bookstore was a friend of mine, and she was a Texan of the Molly Ivins sort.  I'd love to know what she really thought of Clancy, but she was schtum.
