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, XXV. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Donald ("Extra mayo!" ) Trump is tweeting: "AFTER TWO YEARS AND MILLIONS OF PAGES OF DOCUMENTS (and a cost of over $30,000,000), NO COLLUSION! At that price we could have two military parades. One on July 4 and one on my birthday. Sad."


Shamelessly I stole the first sentence of Trump's tweet in this CAPTION directly from this morning's tweet by the Commander in Shite himself as seen in this DU post:


In such dark days as these . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!!

PresiDented Donald ("I'll marry you tomorrow" ) Trump is tweeting: "WH running smooth, set to do AMERICA'S business, all hands on deck, everyone keeping their heads, no brain matter on the ceiling or toys on the Ferris wheel (why can't you get off when you want? Sad.) Squirrels don't have last names. I keep falling asleep in my dreams. So we're all good. Everyone sane. Everyone calm."


Above CAPTION based on the air of anticipation on Friday, December 7, 2018, prior to Mueller filing papers on Cohen and Manafort which may prove devastating to him and his future. Covered by NBC:


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

Donald ("The Man with the Merdus Touch" ) Trump is thinking: "Geez, this is worse than the Correspondents' Dinner."

"Did you hear the one about . . .?" . . . Please come CAPTION Intel Committee's Chris Stewart!!

Christ ("Never to early to lie, no, nor too late to disseminate" ) Stewart is saying: "After all, journalists disappear all the time, Brianna. Did you hear about the reporter who was walking down the street and suddenly turned into a drugstore? . . . But all joking aside, it's like an occupational hazard or part of their genes. You know: trailer parks draw tornadoes and journalists disappear. . . . That's just the way things are."


Above CAPTION based on the CNN interview with Christ Stewart as posted by Crooks and Liars:


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

PresiDented Donald ("Being dead is just stupid" ) Trump is thinking: "Kelly's right. Just pretend I'm looking at a cow dropping a fat paddy on a multi-million-dollar business deal. . . . Then think about the creditors, . . . and how you'd have to sell your yacht. . . . I wonder if this is long enough."

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

PresiDented Donald (Toe-Sucker) Trump is thinking: "They're both cheating on me with each other! . . . And in plain sight! . . . Have they no shame?"


Above CAPTION based on a photo of Vladimir Putin and Mohammed bin Salman lovefest-greeting at the G20 Summit in Argentina, November 30, 2018, as covered by CNBC:


"Waterboarding's for sissies!" . . . Please come CAPTION Sean Hannity!!!

Sean ("I eat nails for breakfast" ) Hannity is saying: "These left wing loons like to call me outrageous, but just tell me how outrageous is it to have military tribunals looking into a out-of-control justice department? . . . I mean, it needs done and who else is there? . . . Let the chips fall where they may. . . . And when you've got the tribunals set up, heck, there's lots of other things that need looking into. . . . Just how is that outrageous? . . . Somebody please explain it to me."


Above CAPTION based on a snippet of Hannity's radio show where a caller brings up tribunals (linked at Media Matters):


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

PresiDented Donald ("There's always suicide" ) Trump is saying: "Don't worry about Mueller., or congressional committees, or Cohen, or any other lying rat. . . I've got a plan, but I'm not telling you guys. . . . Oh, okay, here' a hint: what happened after Michael Corleone attended the christening of his nephew in Godfather I?"

"A lie is just the truth put on backward." Please come CAPTION Jerome Corsi!

Jerome ("I put put the 'i' in 'lie.'" ) Corsi is saying, "I'm telling you now, Ari, that I was lying then even when I swore I was telling the truth, but I'm not lying now when I swear I'm telling the truth, I promise. . . . It's simple to tell the difference: then was then and now is now, at least until now becomes then and there's a new now when I can again swear I'm telling the truth about lying then which happens to be now. . . . See, Ari?"


Above CAPTION based on the crazy interview this spud gave Ari Melber 11.29.18 on MSNBC:


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

PresiDented ("'Global Warming?' I've heard a lot of people calling it 'Scam Gate!'" ) Trump is saying: "Look. I've got a great degree from a great school, right? Better than these government scientists, who are all part of the swamp if you ask me . . . . Anyway, and I've thought about this for well over fifty years. . . . And the data keeps changing, by their own admission. . . . We should just call it 'Data Change' instead of 'Climate Change,' and just wait until it changes back. . . . You've never heard them say that, have you? . . . I tell you, I've thought this through. . . . There's nothing to worry about."


Above CAPTION based upon this buffoon's reaction to the National Climate Assessment issued by the government 11.23.18 as covered by Politico:
