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).

Please come CAPTION the end of another slap-happy interview on Fox & Friends!!!

Ed Henry just finished saying, "And the funny thing is, Derek, these demonstrators even think their voice matters!"

Derek Hunter continues: "You're right, Ed; it's hilarious. . . . Where do they think they are anyway?"

Followed by a hearty round of laughter and a commercial break.


Above CAPTION based on the clip at GadgetRio.us:


"It's ridiculous to compare Trump to Hitler!" . . . Please come CAPTION Dinesh D'Souza!!!!

Dinesh ("For one thing, Hitler had a mustache and Trump hates facial hair" ) D'Souza is saying: "Listen, Hitler's problem was entirely different than Trump's. . . . Hitler had an anti-immigration policy, if you will. He thought the Jews were taking all the good jobs and they wouldn't leave. . . . Whereas with Trump, people want to come in and take all the jobs Americans don't want. . . . So the comparisons are ridiculous. Their problems are totally opposite even though their methods might be the same. . . See?"


Above CAPTION based on the Fox clip wherein Laura Ingram interviews this faux-history ferret as in this short clip at Media Matters:


Oh, the inanity! . . . Please come CAPTION Hannity!!!

Sean ("I haven't had an honest thought since before puberty went horrifically wrong" ) Hannity: "I'm not saying they Miilo Yiannopoulos's idea about squads of vigilantes gunning down journalists on sight is a good idea. . . . Far from it! . . . I'm just asking why we can't listen to both sides? . . . Are we adults or not?"


Above CAPTION based on two separate and discret stories. one of Hannity blaming Maxine Waters for the shooting of journalists 6.28.18, and the other of a chief contender for the ninth circle, Milo Yiannopoulos's's rabid rut of hatred and violence as covered, successively, by USA Today and The Hill:



"After all, the liberals gave us Hitler!" . . . Please come CAPTION Keyyanne Conway!!!

Kellyanne ("I had a heart transplant. It didn't take" ) Conway is saying: "Listen, Shep. There's no equivalence whatsoever. The president calls someone a few silly names or asks the crowd to teach someone a few manners. . . But Maxine Waters calls for the brutal elimination of all conservative thought and action. . . . I mean, I'm not worried about myself. Like when someone said my face looked like a horse's butt that got soaked but then rung out and hung over a Mr. Rubber-face mold, I forgot all about it immediately. . . . I'm like that."

Please come CAPTION The PresiDented of the United States of Hysteria!!!

Donald ("I take Viagra just for the wet dreams" ) Trump is thinking: "Smart asses! . . . Of course they're right. The timing was mine. . . I did ask Kennedy to step down today but I had plenty of great reasons.. . . I mean, look at the news cycle: Rocket man is firing up his plants and sharpening his arsenal, the counter tariffs are about to throw the markets into free fall as inflation swallows multiple times what anyone saved on a tax-cut. And then I hear Mueller will have new indictments within a week. . . . Plenty of good reasons. . . . Now all I got to worry about is what to hit 'em next week to keep them occupied."


Above CAPTION based on the retirement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced 6.27.18 as reported at BuzzFeed:


"Two terms are for losers!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("I'm not going anywhere" ) Trump is saying: "And David Lynch says he really loves me, . . . that I remind him of a character in Blue Velvet! . . . Great movie! . . . Anybody see it? . . . They say it's great, . . . the best"

"If they're not Christian Capitalists, they're not!" . . . Please come CAPTION Jeff Sessions!!!

Jeff ("I saw a dirty picture once. I almost sh*t myself!" ) Sessions is saying: "Listen, it should be as obvious the nose in the middle of your face. . . . The Supreme Court ruled that Trumps' travel ban was based on national security and not religion. . . I mean, those little people can pray to a slimy god with eleven arms all they want, we just don't have to let them into our country."


Above CAPTION based on Sessions's response to the Supreme Court ruling of 6.26.18 as reported by Raw Story:


"Wait until you see my 'Swan Lake'!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("'Humble' begins with a 'T'" ) Trump is saying: "Mark that down, the good king here called me 'graceful and humble.' Those two words. . . Great words! . . . The best words! . . . Well, the first one surprises no one, but most people don't think of 'humble' when they think of me. . . . But let me tell you, I'm probably the most humble guy since Jesus who ever walked the face of the earth. . . . And then Jesus knew that his dad would back him up if he got in real trouble, so . . ."


Above CAPTION based on Presidented Rump's meeting with King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein of Jordan as covered by CNS News:


"So what if DeVos's friend made a killing contracting children's detention?" CAPTION The Donald!

Donald Trump is saying: "Just so you're clear. The Trump Foundation didn't receive a single cent of contractor kickbacks for housing the displaced children, . . . they were more accurately termed 'finder fees.'"

"King Solomon didn't have a buzz-saw, did he?" . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

Donald ("I've got your compassion right here!" ) Trump is saying: "I disagree, this problem with child separation will be simple to fix. . . . Look, you got separated from a 2-year old, curly haired boy? Here's a 2-year old, curly haired boy. . . . Simple! And humane, . . . that's what I say."
