Donald (gold plated hair dryer) Trump is saying: "Of course I believe in the First Amendment, but when someone criticizes this great man at a public theater, somebody has to stop that kind of behavior. . . .

Jeff ("The Klan has always fought for civil rights&quot Sessions is saying: "When I put my hand on the Bible and swear to uphold the laws of the United States of America, that really means something very personal to me.

About skip fox

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).
