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).

"If it's such a great religion, why doesn't the Bible mention Muslims?"...Come CAPTION Steve Doocy!

Steve ("Pull my finger" Doocy is saying: "You're right, Donald, and that opens up another whole can of worms, doesn't it? . . . Like just who is responsible for all the missing tapes of celebrating New Jersey Muslims on 9-11?? . . . Wow! . . Not to mention who changed all the news articles and altered photographs from over two dozen local and regional print and media news sources? . . . Darn, this is getting really big!!"


Above CAPTION loosely based on the following News Hounds story with a hilarious clip of circus clowns:


"That's slander, d*mnit!!!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald Trump is saying: "I'll tell you why the New York Times owes me an apology. . . . Number one, I don't know Mr. Kovaleski, so I don't know what he looks like, so I couldn't have been making fun of his disability. . . . Number two: I would never make fun of someone's appearance or physical handicap and you can tell this Kovaleski, or whatever his name is. that I said so. . . . And if that doesn't satisfy the pissy little g*mp, the hell with him! . . . Hmm, . . . 'Kovaleski' . . . sounds like a P*lack to me."


Above CAPTION based on the following NBC story:


Who put the "hippo" in "hypocrite"? . . Please come CAPTION Rush Limbaugh!!

Rush ("I've had them make cigar suppositories!" Limbaugh is saying: "I say it's shameless that Trump was making fun of a severely disabled person by miming his motions and distorting his voice. . . . As Republicans, we just don't do that! . . . Pure and simple. . . . But in answer to the caller: Listen, Schmuck, what I did to Michael J. Fox was entirely different. . . . Entirely! . . . I was trying to show how he was faking the spasms by exaggerating them. . . . Besides, he was in the wrong! . . . It's an entirely different matter! . . . (I hate it when these liberals call in.)"


Above CAPTION based on the following DU post with a clip of Limbaugh making fun of Fox:


The comics used to be entertaining. . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!

Donald ("Who needs a laugh track?" Trump is saying: "Listen, I'm the last person to make fun of the dead. . . . But, Geez, that did he do? . . . Choke on a turkey bone? . . . Talk about a clutz! . . . What a spaz! . . . Now he's on a slab! . . . Who's keeping track? . . . His whole life is trashed. . . . Hey, I'm a rapper, now. . . . You see, I gotta lot better things to do than make fun of people's infirmities."


Above CAPTION loosely (but essentially) based on the following DU thread with a clip:


"This statement is a lie." . . . Please come CAPTION Ben Carson!!!

Ben ("So my kid says, 'A paradox is two pediatricians,' and begins laughing. . . . What kinda joke is that?" Carson is thinking: "I wonder how they celebrated Thanksgiving back in Biblical times. . . . There weren't turkeys in Israel and football hadn't been invented yet. . . . Maybe they just ate a lot of food and watched t.v."

"The Bible is the unflappable word of God." . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("I've got the greatest memory ever. . . . If I say it happened, it happened." Trump is saying: "Sean, You're right. . . . I've got great respect for Thanksgiving! . . . It's a fabulous holiday, and it kicks off the Christmas season. . . . So we should all respect it and spend the time with family and friends like the Bible instructs. . . . And like one of the gospels said, a little football wouldn't hurt either."

The turkey's turkey. . . . Please come CAPTION Mike Huckabee!!!

Mike ("I thanked the l good Lord every time my daddy whipped me! . . . I didn't have a choice." Huckabee is saying: " . . . and the Executive Branch has ceded its authority to the Judicial. . . What right does the Supreme Court have that lets them get to say what's Constitutional or not? . . . They don't write the laws!!! . . . If I'm elected President, they'll only be deciding things like the official wild-flower of Missouri or which month is National Ammo Month, and stuff like that."


Above CAPTION based on the following DU-Video post:


"Maybe he had it coming!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump on Fox & Friends!!

Donald ("The right guy is the white guy" Trump is saying: "Listen, I saw my supporters showing the Black Lives Matter terrorist out of the rally. I didn't really see them beat him, . . . I mean no where near to the beating he probably deserved. . . . You might say, my supporters did him a favor. . . . All this comparison to the Nazis is the result of the Communist left-wing press, and if I'm elected President, I'll start seeing about them!"


Above CAPTION based on the following News Hounds story with a clip:


"I've learned to stay in the lines and not eat the crayons." . . . Please come CAPTION Ben Carson!!!

Ben ("The Muppets make up the core my brain-trust" Carson is saying: "I'll tell you, Sean, the first reason voters should vote for me is because I can articulate intelligent options, by which I mean I know how to work with other people since children are our greatest resource, and I've learned to to listen very, very close,s so I can hear the radio even when it's turned off, and in curvy situations I can think straight, so like I know that it all boils down to protection and keeping the Syrian mob in Mexico where they come from. . . . Besides, who else is there to vote for?"

America's Favorite Rabid Rat! . . . Please come CAPTION Sheriff Joseph Arpaio!!!!

Sheriff Joseph ("I haven't had sex for 34 years!" Arpaio is saying: "Why, that whippy, little, Mexican-lovin', spittle-drippin', lib-simp of a judge!!!! . . . Imagine! . . . Finding me in contempt! . . . I'd like to grab him by his slimy little n*ts (if I could find them), then squeeze them in my fist like a vice on steroids and ask him what he has to say about that!! . . . Contempt my ass!!!""
