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).

Would you believe it??"

"Why, thirty-nine years ago today. . . ." Please come CAPTION Richard Nixon!!!

Richard (the III) Milhouse Nixon is saying: ""It's only because my administration was so effectual and honest that, effective at five o'clock tonight, I will resign office. . . .

It's a simple as that."

"You're not in Kansas anymore. You never were." Please come CAPTION Rush Limbaugh!!!

Rush ("I can make the truth cry 'uncle' while p*ssing its little panties" Limbaugh is saying: "Listen friends, we're not even close to living in a free country! . . . We think of Russia as repressive, yet in Russia they are free to ban gay athletes from competition! . . . They're free to hire someone at whatever damn wage they want.. . . They're free to mine and drill wherever the hell they please! . . . They're free to lock people up without liberal habeas corpus laws, public defenders, and trial lawyers threatening to sue. . . . When you come right down to it, you have to admit: Russians have freedoms that Americans can only dream about!!"

"Anyone I want to be." Please come CAPTION Liz Cheney!!!

Liz ("Rules are for other people" Cheney is saying: "Just because I've only lived there for a year, I think I'd be a great spokesperson for Wyoming in the United States Senate. . . . You see, I've thought about Wyoming a lot and I have cherished my memories of my childhood's here for decades now. . . . Of course if I lose, I'll split this barren hell-hole as quickly as my little boots can take me."

The original sink-hole. . . . Please come CAPTION Rush Limbaugh!!

Rush (two spans the normal man) Limbaugh is saying: "Listen, I'm as patriotic as the next guy, but if I go down I'm taking the country with me!"

I can't show you that evidence just yet, but the people who have seen it say it'll be a bombshell!!! . . Believe me on this one."

"An error a day will boost my pay." Please come CAPTION The Weekly Standard's Stephen Hayes!!!

The same people who are still killing our soldiers and attacked us on 9/11!!! . . . You just can't make this stuff up, believe me."

"I might be wrong but who cares?" . . . Please come CAPTION John Stossel!!!

John ("Responsibility is for suckers!" Stossel just got done saying: "The fact is, Laura, women want to take easier jobs. . . Their hearts just aren't into the capitalist work ethic. . . . Or they just want to be mommies. . . . How do they expect to get paid as much as men when they aren't willing to contribute to society? . . . Only liberal social-justice types would even think of such a thing!"

Who put the hippo in hypocrisy? . . . Please come CAPTION RNC Chair Reince Priebus!!!!

Reince ("When I think of my life I get very, very tired" Priebus is saying: "Listen, Sean, when the lame-stream media plans to air so-called documentaries on Hillary new year, they clearly demonstrate, once again, their duplicitous, almost criminal, double standard. . . . How would the Democrats like it if there was a conservative channel which only promoted Republican candidates???? . . . These people are unbelievable!!!"

What's so bad about slavery, anyway? . . . Please come CAPTION Rush Limbaugh!!!

Rush ("Up is the new down, cold is the new hot, light is the new dark, got it?" Limbaugh is saying: "I want to know why American caucasians are supposed to feel guilty about slavery. . . . Listen, primarily in the 18th and 19th centuries, some British and American entrepreneurs rescued a bunch of ignorant and savage people from a misbegotten continent, gave them free travel to the greatest country in the world, and guaranteed them full employment. . . . So what if their travel was restricted for a couple years? They were still here and not getting eaten by lions or by their fellow man, so called. . . And now they have it made with food stamps, assistance, cheap wine, and plenty 0f fried chicken franchises. . . . It's time we were proud of our country's history of slavery!!"
