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).

Profiles in Crazy, XXX. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Trump is saying: "Listen, Jesse, do you know of anyone who might want to be Chief of Staff? . . . Siri just laughs."


Above CAPTION based on this spud's difficulty in getting a new Chief of Staff as covered by The Hill:


"It was all Hillary's fault" . . . Please come CAPTION Stephen Miller!!!

Stephen Miller is saying: "It's really very simple, Laura, President Trump's immigration policies have nothing to do with the seven-year-old girl's death. If anything, they almost saved her. It's clearly the Democrats fault. . . . If there was a wall it never would have happened. . . . How 'bout we name it after her? . . . The Jackie Perez (or whatever) Memorial Wall. . .. How's that?"


Above CAPTION based on Stephen Miller's reaction to the death of Jakelin Caal, the seven-year-old Guatemalan girl, who was attempting to enter this country.

Here's the story from CBS:


Here's this spud's interview on Face the Nation:


Profiles in Crazy, XXIX. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

Donald ("Even the playground is mine" ) Trump is thinking: "This is great. I'm inventing a new tradition on the spot: The Coin Pitch! . . . 'Tossing' is for sissies. . . . The crowd is going wild. . . They're really loving it. . . . Just listen to them laughing!"

End-game? Trump makes deal with Mueller not to charge his children & resigns.

That seems to be where we are headed.

Maybe Don, Jr., will do 6 months. Maybe Trump will pay heavy fine. But this president will likely resign, maybe losing pension.

Profiles in Crazy, XXVIII. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented (an I.Q. up in the dozens) Trump is saying: "I'm telling you I'm brilliant. . . Hell, I've got ideas up here that I can't even figure out, . . . and still fake news calls me crazy."

Profiles in Crazy, XXVII. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Donald ("Sorry, I left my wallet at home" ) Trump is saying: "This whole Mueller probe and its findings are as fake as the moon landing and Obama's so called 'Certificate of Live Birth,' not to mention science . . . Just so you know."

"As one of your closest advisors, Mr. President, . . . " Come CAPTION Fox & Friends' Brian Kilmeade!

Brian ("Who needs a lobotomy?" ) Kilmeade is saying: "Davide Bossie's your guy for Chief of Staff, if you're listening Mr. President. . . . I took the liberty of checking with Ted Nugent, but he said he'd only come if he could be packing, but the Secret Service nixed that. . . . And I have other ideas as well, including Joe Pesci and Rocky Balboa, Mr. President. . . . I'm just proud to be part of your brain trust. . . . You can count on me."

Profiles in Crazy, XXVI. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Trump is saying: "I know what I'm doing, Chuck. Shutting down the government will be all on me and now I won't be able to claim that the Democrats did it, which was one of my few negotiating chips. . . . It might seem crazy, but you just wait and see."

Schumer is thinking: "You got it, bozo."

"Putin gives me wood." . . . Please come CAPTION NRA-TV's Dan Bongino!!!

Dan ("I'm not stupid. You're stupid." ) Bongino is saying: "My critics are either stupid or liars. . . . There's absolutely nothing unpatriotic about it! . . . In fact it's super-patriotic. . . . If the Russians help us identify and round up members of the Deep State, we can deal with them. . . . And who better than the Russians? They'd be more objective than anyone in either political party. . . After all, who else can you trust?"

The League of Nutjobs. . . Please come CAPTION Heather Nauert!!

Heather ("Why wouldn't O'Reilly make a pass at me?" ) Nauert is saying: "When I'm Ambassador to The United Nations, my number one priority will be to prevent another Cold War. . . . Heating prices are too high already, and if Americans have to pay more for fuel, that means less on keeping this great economy going. . . Before you know it factories are shutting down, and so on. . . . There's a cascading effect. . . We sure don't want another Cold War. . . Brrrrrrr. . . . Nobody wins in the end. Not really."


Above CAPTION based on the paucity of knowledge this Fox news-reader has before being be appointed to the position of U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, as covered in Mediate:
