About Me

I am retired, now a professor emeritus at University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where I taught in the English department for 37 years. I've written 4 chapbooks and 5 full-sized books (all listed as poetry though many include other genres as well), including _Sheer Indefinite: Selected Poems, 1991-2012 (Univ. of New Orleans Press, 2012). I've also written a 500+ page bibliography of three contemporary poets: Robert Creeley, Ed Dorn, and Robert Duncan. I am writing now, both fiction and poetry, more now than ever. My first vote for President of the United States was for Dick Gregory in 1968 (Bowling Green, Ohio). Favorite quote: "It's easy to be an idealist if you don't have to mind the evidence, but no one said it was supposed to be easy" (Richard LaPauvre).

"Grifting 24/7, 365 days a year. It doesn't pay to sleep." Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

PresiDented ("My favorite philosopher is the bottom line." ) Trump is saying: "Shut up for a moment and let me answer the question! . . . I'll repeat. . . . What you did was far worse, Mr. Franken, than all the allegations against me and Judge Roy Moore put together and for one simple reason: you admitted what she charged! . . . . Now just how is it can't you see the logic of that?"

". . . the whole truth and nothing but the truth." . . . Please come CAPTION Roy Moore!!!!

Speaking to a reporter during this screen-shot, Roy Moore is saying: "You can tell it's a fake right off the bat. . . . I know the handwriting looks exactly like mine, but I would never write 'Olde Hickory House' with the pretentious 'e' at the end of 'old' and I'd never, ever write 'sweeter more beautiful' without using a comma between the two descriptors. . . . I just wasn't brought up that way."

Is there a brain in there or is it just all gun powder and lead? Please come CAPTION Sean Hannity!!!

Sean ("Dementia can be seen as a blessing if you look at it right" ) Hannity is saying: "So, starting now, Roy Moore, I'm giving you 24 hours to prove that you are innocent of all these allegations. If you don't or, worse, can't, then I'll just have to move on to other matters like exposing even more of the Clinton-uranium matter, excoriating liberal professors, defending fossil-fuel, chemical and pharmaceutical companies against scurrilous attacks from the left, and so forth. . . . . Roy Moore, You've been warned! . . . The clock's ticking."

"Even in a vacuum something's there." . . . Please come CAPTION Jeff Sessions!!!

Jeff ("Even a lie is right twice a day" ) Sessions is saying: "Basically you're right, congressman: Hillary Clinton was not the Secretary of State when the majority of the donation from Uranium One was made to the Clinton Foundation, and when she was, the director at the time of the donations had long retired.. . . You're also correct that it took nine cabinet officials and department heads to approve the uranium deal and that the matter likely didn't rise to the Secretary's attention. . . You can find all that in Snopes, if you want, but that still doesn't answer the real question, the burning question: How can I keep my job through the end of the week? . . . Darn right we need a special counsel!"


Above CAPTION based on a crystal-ball reading of Sessions testimony before the House Judiciary Committee later today.

"We could learn a lot from East Asia." . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!

Donald ("And you've weaponized 'Just say no.'" ) Trump is saying: "I've told everyone I'm going to bring up human rights, so I will. . . . But human rights or not, I've got to hand it to you, Rodrigo. You did a great job. . . . First you vetted the press (extreme vetting, I might say) and since then there's not been a single charge brought against you. . . . It's win-win as far as I'm concerned. . . There, I've brought it up."

Above CAPTION based on Trump's meeting with Rodrigo Duterte, the butcher of the Philippines, as reported by NPR:


"Everybody's just pretending to get offended!" . . . Please come CAPTION Roy Moore!!!

Roy ("I know what they really want" ) Moore is saying: "Listen, her grades were slipping and I was helping her out. . . trying to teach her, you might say, . . . or like a tutor. . . . I mean, if I had any biology textbooks around my house, things might have gone differently."

Embracing the dark side. . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Steve Doocy!!!

Steve ("After all, Eve was only a few days old" ) Doocy is saying: "For all we know Judge Roy Moore, who didn't have any children of his own, was simply acting like a parent showing his 13-year old daughter what she might expect so she would know how to defend herself. . . . Now watch all the liberal-wackos pretend to get all creaped out about what I just said. . . . That just shows how morally bankrupt they are. . . . Imagine, making a parental teaching moment into a disgusting, illegal act jut to serve their own political agenda."


Above CAPTION based on the defense of Roy Moore's behavior by some wacko Republicans like this state auditor as reported by the Washington Examiner:


Or Sean Hannity in this DU posting:


"How do you say 'Baby, I'm yours,' in Russian?" Please come CAPTION Putin's English translator!

Putin's English translator is saying: "Trump just said: 'Please remember to bring the original tapes and files when we meet in November. I'm trusting that you didn't make copies. . . . And maybe we can even find some Us time. . . . Remember the "You've been so, so naughty" game'?"


Above CAPTION based solely on the fact that Trump and Putin are set to meet in Vietnam this Friday, Nov. 9, 2017, as reported by CNBC and posted at DU:


"Just because I direct a security firm, doesn't mean . . ." Please come CAPTION NRA's Chuck Holton!!

Chuck ("Let's see those hands!" ) Holton is saying, "Listen, Sharon, I'd be the last person to capitalize on a tragedy like the horrific church shootings in Texas. . . . But the shooting does show us one thing: no one is safe anywhere, especially at public events, unless highly trained security personnel with a firm that stands behind their training and lethal expertise like LionHeart, is hired by the organizers of that event. . . . But right now we must respect the solemnity of this event and pray for the victims and their families. . . . To do otherwise would be not only crude, but cruel."


Above CAPTION based on the following MediaMatters story:


"My favorite movie is Duck Soup." . . . Please come CAPTION Carter Page!!

Carter ("I have two pair of giraffe pajamas" ) Page is saying: "Listen, I simply told the House Intelligence Committee what I have maintained all along: that if you don't count the Russian Deputy Prime Minister, Arkady Dvorkovich, Russian legislators and senior members of Putin's administration, I had absolutely no contact with Russian officials during my trip in July of last year. . . . I just forgot the middle part before."
