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).

Bill ("I'll not let truth stand in my way!" O'Reilly is saying: "They are absolutely wrong calling Christmas a religious holiday. . . . Nothing could be further from the truth. . . . It's a secular holiday. . . . Pure and simple. . . . And every right-thinking American knows it! . . . Next the progressives will be calling Our Holy Lord Jesus Christ a religious figure!. . . . Imagine!"

"Let's shut it down again!" . . . Please come CAPTION Heritage Action's CEO Michael Needham!!!

Michael ("More zombies in Congress!!" Needham is saying, "Indeed, the government shutdown was a stunning success!!!! . . . That much is obvious to everyone who is not ideologically blind. . . . Another one, which Heritage Action sponsors by the way, will deal the deathblow to Obamacare and destroy the Democratic Party for decades to come. . . . . After all, it's a party held hostage by the its wildest and most irresponsible members of their base who supported the very nuts who made Republicans shutdown the government just so they could save Obamacare and destroy the Republican
brand. . . . In short, for their own political purposes!!! . . . How irresponsible can you get?"


The above CAPTION is only marginally related to the following DU story:
