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).

"Just because I direct a security firm, doesn't mean . . ." Please come CAPTION NRA's Chuck Holton!!

Chuck ("Let's see those hands!" ) Holton is saying, "Listen, Sharon, I'd be the last person to capitalize on a tragedy like the horrific church shootings in Texas. . . . But the shooting does show us one thing: no one is safe anywhere, especially at public events, unless highly trained security personnel with a firm that stands behind their training and lethal expertise like LionHeart, is hired by the organizers of that event. . . . But right now we must respect the solemnity of this event and pray for the victims and their families. . . . To do otherwise would be not only crude, but cruel."


Above CAPTION based on the following MediaMatters story:


"My favorite movie is Duck Soup." . . . Please come CAPTION Carter Page!!

Carter ("I have two pair of giraffe pajamas" ) Page is saying: "Listen, I simply told the House Intelligence Committee what I have maintained all along: that if you don't count the Russian Deputy Prime Minister, Arkady Dvorkovich, Russian legislators and senior members of Putin's administration, I had absolutely no contact with Russian officials during my trip in July of last year. . . . I just forgot the middle part before."


Above CAPTION based on the following HuffPost story:


What happens when two black holes collide? . . . Please come CAPTION Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck!

Bill ("Smell my cigar" ) O'Reilly is saying: "And just like they did to you, pal, these wackos at Media Matters went around and told my sponsors that I was bad for business and basically drove me off of my own program. . . . The little weasels! . . . They're all hypocrites! . . . Like none of them gave a woman what she was really asking for. . . . Like none of them ever played Cap-tor and Naughty Hostage. . . . Like none of them ever had to pay out a unjust settlement."

Glenn (Locked Razor) Beck adds: "Yeah, . . and like none of them was ever in full restraints on the Maximum Security Ward."


Above CAPTION based on the following Media Matters story with a radio clip:


"A warm bucket of p*ss for your thoughts." . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!

Donald ("Why do I smell rubber burning every time I try to think?" ) Trump is thinking: "Let's see, I could fire Sessions and say it was because Congress had lost confidence in him. . . . But that would still leave Rosenstein between me and Mueller. . . . Or I could try to keep everyone's loyalty by issuing blanket pardons for anyone involved in this mess now or in the future. . . . But then they'd have to talk and could go to jail for lying. . . . Or I could fire the entire F.B.I for not investigating Hillary, . . . but then some people would probably pretend to get upset. . . . Geez, I've got to think of something soon! . . . It's already Friday and in a few short hours, it'll be afternoon."

"Don't believe your eyes." . . . Please come CAPTION Sarah Huckabee. Sanders!!!

In a voice-over Sarah Huckabee ("Haven't had enough of this sh*t yet? Hold on!" ) Sanders is saying: "Yes, we've all seen this picture before. . . . And like others, we thought it strange that the mail-boy and go-fer would come to work every day dressed in a suit and tie. . . . and you can certainly bet that nobody was as shocked as we were when he (he was supposed to be bringing one secretary a fresh bottle of water) saw an empty seat and slid right into it. . . . It was only a coincidence that the photographer decided to snap the official shot at that precise moment. . . . Why is that so hard to believe? . . . Those are simply the facts."

"And what's more . . ." Please come CAPTION Fox's Judge Jeanine Pirro!!!

Judge Jeanine ("Let them eat rat posion" ) Pirro is saying: "And I not only say LOCK HER UP, but erase her name from the all of the history books while she rots. . . What's so harsh about that?"

"Why would anyone believe the F.B.I. more than me?" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("I promise to tell the whole spoof and nothing but the spoof" ) Trump is thinking: "Damn! They're falling all around me. Indictments. Guilty pleas. Mueller interviewing the staff. . . . Manafort flipping. Or Flynn. Or you name it. . . . But I could change it all in a New York minute. . . . Fire that nosy creep. . . . Maybe Fox and Bannon and Sarah can spin it enough so that . . . Well, I'll figure this out. . . . I always have. . . . Too bad it's not Friday afternoon."


Above CAPTION based on indictments and events of 10.30.17 as reported by the BBC


Never too early to lie or ever too late. . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald (cranium filled with decapitated angels) Trump is saying: "No, Peter, I understood your question and I'll give you a clear, straightforward answer: No. I am not planning on firing Robert Mueller. That is, I hope I won't have to. . . . If he had any honor, he should resign from this witch hunt. . . . He's ruining his reputation. . . . I would be doing him a favor. And I can't see why the nation should abide such a travesty a moment longer. . . . So, the answer is, Peter: No. I don't plan to. . . . That should answer your question."

"I learned deception at my father's knee." Please come CAPTION Jim Acosta and Sarah H. Sanders!!!

Jim Acosta just finished saying: "Just what is the evidence that Hillary Clinotn colluded with Russia on the uranium deal?"

Sarah Huckleberry Sanders is saying: "Now Jim, if the Clinton camp would give us the evidence, we'd have it and we'd certainly share it with you, don't you think?. . . . The President has always said he wants transparency. . . . The question is: do you? . . . We're not trying to hide anything much less deflect from Muller's sham inquiry. . . . Why would you even suggest such a thing? . . . Besides, you're giving comfort to our enemies. . . . And as I've always maintained: taking a knee during the anthem is like spitting on Lincoln's grave. . . . Next."


Above CAPTION based on the following exchange captured by Mediaite:


"I've got questions, and my questions have got questions!" Please come CAPTION Tucker Carlson!!!

Tucker ("Why sweat the facts?" ) Carlson is saying: "And don't you find it strange that the same day I come out with my Vegas conspiracy theory authorities reveal that Hillary personally paid for the Steele Dossier? . . . I know what the Clinton camp will say. They'll say it's just a coincidence. . . . But what do you think, audience?"
