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).

Journal Archives

"The cows are coming home to roost." . . . Please come CAPTION Lou Dobbs!!!

Lou ("If I had it brain, it would be lonely" ) Dodds is saying: "And so it's your contention that because Representative Ilhan Omar referred to terrorists as 'people,' that she shows her sympathies to the Jihad and Shaira law and decapitating infidels and suicide bombers in our malls? . . . Makes perfect sense to me."


A clip of these three putting their heads together and the resultant word rut is posted at Media Matters:


"Just what kind of science is 'political'?" . . . Please come CAPTION Rep. Thomas Massie (R.-KY)!!!

Sec. John Kerry just asked: "Are you serious?"

Rep. Thomas ("I'm not crazy. It's just that things are different all the time" ) Massie is saying: "I'm as serious as a hot case of cancer! . . . I call political science a 'pseudo-science' because nobody can tell me what kind of science 'political' is. . . . I mean, does it have to do with flowers and trees? . . . Or rockets and Mars? . . . Will it get us to the Moon? . . . Or maybe it will cure cancer? . . . You bet I'm serious! . . . You can tell by the quality of my question just how serious I am!"


Above CAPTION based on the Kerry-Masssie exchange HuffPost links here:


"Humpty Dumpty was a cry baby!" . . . Please come CAPTION Mad King Trump!!!

PresiDented ("My dementia is doing just fine, thank you" ) Trump is saying: "Just how is it vindictive to give someone what he or she wants. Therefore, I'm ordering I.C.E. to dump all the illegal migrants they pick up into California's sanctuary cities. Those with rap sheets and facial tattoos will be given highest priority. . . . Just how is that vindictive?"


Above CAPTION based on the current Miller/Trump mind warp:


Please come CAPTION the nation's leading law enforcement offiicer, A.G. William P. Barr.

William Pelham ("the 'p' is for 'pissant'" ) Barr is saying: "I am only after the truth, no matter where that takes me. . . . I'm making no judgments here whatsoever unless, of course, we uncover a nest of venomous traitors in the F.B.I. and the judiciary, as I've been hearing from highly reputable sources, who also tell me Pizzagate was a scandal that was meant to be seen through but also to distract us so we weren't looking when Hillary smuggled the children sex-slaves through a Wafflehouse just north of Newark. . . But no, I am not making any judgments."

The bone behind the throne. . . . Please come CAPTION Stephen Miller!!!!

Stephen ("Do I see a fat, juicy fly?" ) Miller is thinking: "This will get those idiots in the press. . . . Wait till I raise my arm straight up and out; . . . they'll go bat-shit! . . . . What a bunch of simps."

Profiles in Crazy, LXXI. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Donald (Who put the "D" in "deranged"?) Trump is saying: "Listen, just because I continually told you I'd release my tax returns, but I've never shown them to you and blocked your every effort to see them, and now my chief of staff said you'll never see get to see them, doesn't mean there's anything to hide. . . . Maybe I won't release them to keep you from being embarrassed when you see I'm innocent as a baby. . . . You never thought of that,did you? . . . Where did you say you went to school?"


Above CAPTION based on Trump's almost hysterical desire to keep his tax records hidden in light of Mick Mulvaney's recent comment:


"Chris Hayes should be made to wear skirts" . . . Please come CAPTION Tucker Carlson!!!

Yucker Carlson is saying: "Chris Hayes is what men will be like if feminists get their way: considerate, intelligent thoughtful, and polite, listening closely to what every thinking person says, condemning needless violence, and championing the down-trodden. . . . Utterly repulsive on every score!"


Above CAPTION based on Carlson's half-witted putdown of Hayes on Fox:


Below, by the way, is Hayes on Seth Meyers reaction to Carlson's knuckle-dragging rant:


Profiles in Crazy, LXX. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented ("I keep dreaming of Mom's big scissors" ) Trump is saying: "Not only do wind turbines cause noise-cancer in the brain but solar panels are said to be the leading cause seeing-cancer in your eye. . . . I know, I know, it's hard to believe. . . . But there it is!"


Above CAPTION based, of course, on T-boy's claim about the noise from wind turbines:


"I road a horse of misinformation and hatred into the White House.". . . Come CAPTION this spud!!!

PresiDented Trump is saying: "Somehow people find it hard to believe when I tell them how great I was as a student at the greatest university there ever was; or when I note how many billions (literally billions!) I have given to charity, much of it anonymously if you want to know; or when I point out that one of the Czar's children escaped and fathered my mother, so by rights . . . um . . . never mind. . . . But you never report that do you? Yet it's all right out there. . . . The simple, God's-honest truth!"

Profiles in Crazy, LXIX. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

Donald ("What's wrong with batshit?" ) Trump is saying: "My father was born in a wonderful little village in Germany. . . You might say it was enchanted (which might explain my excellent genes, by the way). . . . And his father, my grandfather, was the heir to the Russian throne and would have been emperor, avoiding all the Revolution nonsense, but the Russian fake news and deep state brought him down. . . . Believe me."


Above CAPTION based on the fact that his brillancy has mistated his father's birthplace four times recently:
