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).

"Those minds at Sesame Street, I mean . . . Wow!" . . . Please come CAPTION Ben Carson!!!



Ben ("Fox News is like beacon of light in the desert" Carson is saying: "Listen, guys, I wouldn't have let the Oregon gunman just stand me up and shoot me, I'd do something like jump into the air and give him a power kick to the jaw as I sail over him, or grab a lighter and a can of hairspray and turn it into a flamethrower like on James Bond, or have a guy in a helicopter toss me a grenade launcher, or . . . .Well, you guys get the idea. . . . We need to come up with mature, level-headed, thoughtful solutions to these problems."

Rat's *ss crazy, you bet! . . . Please come CAPTION Lou Dobbs!!!



Lou ("Cotton Mather is my favorite philosopher" Dobbs is saying: "You can draw a direct line of between 1963 when school prayer was outlawed and the mass shootings on campuses today. . . . If you kick God out of the classroom, guess who comes in??? . . . And who does Satan bring with him? . . . . You guessed it: some nut with half-a-dozen-guns, twenty clips, and an issue, thatís who! . . . . Name me one school shooting before '63! . . . . Then look at today! . . . Why does no one seen the connection but me?"

"It's as easy as brain surgery with a chainsaw." . . . Please come CAPTION Ben Carson!!!



Ben ("Just hold still for a minute, will ya?" Carson just finished saying: "If it's a majority of people in that area want a Confederate flag to fly, I certainly wouldn't take it down. . . . Who's to say that even some of my own ancestors weren't proud to be slaves under its banner? . . . Maybe thousands of them teared up to the strains of Ol' Dixie Mine and wept to be part of the land of cotton that stretched out beneath that glorious flag! . . . I mean whose to say anyway?"

Above CAPTION is based upon (indeed the first sentence is almost verbatim from) the following article at Crooks & Liars":

"The Pope and I are best buds." . . . Please come CAPTION Kim Davis!!



Kim ("My hubbies were all wieners" Davis is saying: "You're right, Megyn, The Pope was very supportive of my mission. . . . Some might find this hard to believe, but he told I should spearhead a nationwide movement to ban all gays, gay songs, gay expressions, and other gayness from public life. . . . He told me to convert as many as I could, and drive the rest of them back into the shadows . . . or he said I could get rid of them by any means I deemed necessary. . . . He also mentioned that there could be a sainthood in it for me. . . . I told you it might be hard to believe!"

A morning without dick is like a bullwhip without the crack! . . . Please come CAPTION Dick Cheney!!



Dick Cheney is saying: "Chuck, like many other things, it's all in the way you look at it. Some called it an invasion and others called it liberation. . . . Some called it torture and some called it a robust discussion. . . . Just like some called it death, whereas others (like myself by the way), called it providing the ultimate safety net."

"Just follow the yellow brick road." . . . Please come CAPTION Jeb Bush!!!!



Jeb ("Sometimes I even put myself to sleep!" Bush is saying: "Good question, Peter. . . . Let me talk about the Colorado shooting and all the other mass shootings for a minute. . . . My best analysis is that stuff happens. . . . That might sound simplistic, but it's really very deep. . . It means that sometimes lots of stuff happens, but other times less stuff happens, and occasionally (and here's the kicker) even other stuff happens. . . . Sometimes I amaze myself!)

"Teacher's let the monkeys out!" . . . Please come CAPTION O'Reilly and the two other stooges!!



Bill ("Why do ll my dreams smell like fecal stew?" O'Reilly said a few seconds ago: "What I miss about high-school is that you could make stuff up about anyone or any thing, and you didn't have to care a bit, no matter much you hurt someone, cause you were just a kid."

Bernard ("My dad wouldn't give me bike until I stopped doing nasty things in public" McGuirk just got done saying: "Yeah, and it could be really stupid, silly, hurtful childish stuff! . . . I loved that!"

Greg ("I'd joke about my grandmother's death" Gutfield is saying: "You bet, guys. . . (sigh) . . . Those were the days!!"

"I'll make you wish Boehner never even considered resignation!" . . . Come CAPTION Kevin McCarthy!



Kevin ("My favorite philosopher is Orly Taitz" McCarthy is saying: "You're exactly right, Sean, the Benghazi Committee did more than just bring Hillary Clinton down. . . . We wouldn't have wasted the taxpayers' time and energy for simply that! . . . We also got pretend we cared about the deaths of that left-wing ambassador and his three stooges, and that's helped the Republican brand shoot up in the polls. . . . It was win-win all the way!"

Fresh blood for House leadership! . . . Please come CAPTION Steve Scalise!!!!



Steve ("I'm only white because I'm right." Scalise is saying: "It doesn't matter that I spoke to David Duke's white supremacy group. . . . That shouldn't make a difference in my bid for House Majority Leader. . . . Heck, that was all in the past. . . . Long ago. . . . Besides, it really shows how well I reflect the values of the Republican membership!"

"Hillary is yesterday's toast." . . . Please come CAPTION Washington Post's Chris Cillizza!!!



Chris ("I hear Fox News might have an opening" Cillizza is saying: "Hell no, I'm not obsessed about Hillary's e-mail scandal which will likely land her in federal prison next to other lying, dangerous criminals who have shown no evidence of respect for their fellow humans, much less the law. . . . After all, there are plenty of other things to talk about. . . . But did you know that her private server was designed by a Muslim terrorist? . . . It just came out. . . . And how about those . . . what some are calling 'the hit-man e-mails'?"
