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

An ethical vacuum in an immoral package. . . . Please come CAPTION Tucker Carlson!!!

Tucker ("Regret is for losers!" Carlson is saying: "And that one boatload which got ashore represents 30 million illegal immigrants who rape and kill the women as well as steal the jobs of hard-working Americans who can no longer find jobs in the bean and tomato fields at summer's end, or shovel and transport medical waste, or manually clear the clogs and massive clots in the web-works of our antiquated sewage systems! . . . Those lucky and thankless bastards!!"


Caption based on the following News Hounds story:


"Hitler was a weenie. He loved his dog." . . . Please come CAPTION Dick Cheney!!!

Dick ("What are you laughing at, squirt?" ) Cheney is saying: "On 9/11 my undisclosed location was Newark's east-side Hooters!"

"Wanta see a loser? Gotta mirror?" . . . Please come CAPTION The Donald!!!

Donald ("Don't interrupt!" Trump is saying: "I'm thinking Jim Inhofe for the Environmental Protection Agency. . . . He's great! . . . I mean, bringing a snowball to the Senate floor to prove there's no such thing as global warming! . . . .Boy, that shut everyone up! . . . You could hear their jaws hit the floor! . . . Genius, sheer genius!!!"

A dervish in the "No-Spin Zone." . . . Please come CAPTION Sarah Palin!!

Sarah ("After all, logic is logic!" Palin just finished saying: "I'm answering your question, Bill, if you'd only pay attention. . . . Planned Parenthood is targeting women in black neighborhoods for abortions specifically because Congressional gridlock and the administration's refusal to call Islamic terrorism what it is, has made us realize that Cassius is neither lean nor hungry, and on top of that, every indication points to the fact that Planned Parenthood despises the Confederate flag. . . . I'm surprised at you, Bill, it's almost too obvious to have to point out!"


Above CAPTION based on the following Crook&Liars story with a fascinating O'Reilly clip in which Bill-O lets Palin dodge the question three times without blinking an eyelash:


(Is there even an estimate as to how many times O'Reilly said he won't let people get away with spin on his show? This time he repeats the question three times patiently, even rephrasing it once (perhaps thinking Palin may have misunderstood him), and she blathers on about how bad Planned Parenthood is, how our tax dollars shouldn't be so used, etc., etc., without ever coming close to touching an answer.)

The Great White Hunter. . . Please come CAPTION Walter Palmer!!!

Walter ("Always locked and loaded!" Palmer is saying: "Listen, if I wouldn't have shot it, it could have left the jungle, crossed the savanna, walked over a mountain range and another 340 miles to the coast, found a raft loosely tied up to the shore, floated across the Atlantic, jumped a freight to Minnosota, prowled the night-lit streets of my hometown, picked my front-door's lock, came upstairs and ripped my throat out! . . . It was actually a close call if you think about it."


This Putin-wantabe, and slap-ass sexual harasser is covered in Crook&Liars:


and at The Telegraph:


Trump works on his cabinet. . . . Please come CAPTION The Donald with Sarah Palin!!!

Donald Trump: "I think you'd make a swell Secretary of State because you can see Russia from your kitchen window!"

Sarah Palin: "And how 'bout Ted Nugent for Defense 'cause he knows so much about guns and stuff!"

Donald Trump: "Sarah, . . . I just don't know how you do it!!!"


Above CAPTION based on the following Crooks&Liars story:


"Ex-wives will saying anything. They're losers by definition." Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!!

Donald ("Scalp reduction surgery? . . . Never happened." Trump is saying: "It wasn't really a rape. . . . Let's just say that one night she didn't feel quite so sexually satisfied!"


Above CAPTION based on the following Daily Beast story:


A shorter version of which can be found in Crooks& Liars with Megyn Kelly whitewashing the story:


Darth Vader's wet dream speaks! . . . Please come CAPTION Dick Cheney!!!

Dick ("The great thing about infants? . . . You don't have to tenderize them." Cheney is saying: "I have it on great authority that ISIS has discovered Saddam's weapons of mass destruction and is planning to attack the American homeland with them. . . . But the problem is, I can't get anyone in the current administration to listen. . . . which just shows how out-of-touch they are!"

"The kettle is much darker than I am!" . . . Please come CAPTION Lindsey Graham!!!

Lindsey ("Who lives in a glass house??" Graham is saying: "Donald Trump appeals to the dark side of American politics. . . . He can only find the negative in what others sincerely try to do. . . . He always uses language that gets him the maximum attention and that makes his opponents seem crassly indifferent if not down-right evil! . . . And he cares far more about his political future than the good of the country. . . . I have no idea why people would pay the slightest attention to some jackass like this! . . . Darth Vader's having a wet-dream! . . . That's what I think."


Above CAPTION based on the following Crooks&Liars story with an ABC clip:


"Who reads the polls, anyway? Not me!" . . . Please come CAPTION Mike Huckabee!!!

Mike Huckabee is saying: "I don't have to exaggerate to get my poll numbers to go up. . . . Not in this instance. . . I tell you, with this deal, Obama is leading the Israelis straight to the ovens. . . . He's telling everyone it's just a shower, but he's laughing behind their backs and will give the go-ahead for their extinction whenever the Ayatollah asks. . . . Like I said: I don't have to exaggerate with this one. . . I'm too honorable to do so anyway!"


Above CAPTION based on the following DU story with link:


And this Huffington Post story just came up:


(He actually said Obama was leading the Israelis to the oven! Can you believe this guy??? In the next several weeks I have a feeling we're going to be very entertained by both the lower-tier Republican candidates trying to get on the stage, and upper-tier candidates trying to stay on the stage. Huckabee is number seven today.)
