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).

"And now it turns out the corona virus is a GOOD thing!" Please come CAPTION Tucker Carlson!!!

Tucker Carlson is saying: "At first the data suggested that the Delta Variant was relatively benign, sending less people to the hospital and the ICU, but now we're coming to realize that if people catch this variant they will actually end up better and the society will reach herd immunity faster. . . . Those people fully vaccinated will be will not only have 'buyer's remorse,' but will be forever left behind and be exposed as anti-American!"


Above CAPTION based on this spud's performance last night downplaying the illness for the virus (totally unaware of the lag-time for hospitalizations and deaths).

"Or do you want to be like a dog?". . . . Please come CAPTION Sean Hannity!!!

Sean ("My head has always been magnetic" ) Hannity is saying: "In the interests of responsible journalism I want to say that you you should make your own choice on whether to be vaccinated or not. . . . I mean you might want to check with your doctor. . . . But in the end, it's your choice. . . . You can either be an American and choose freedom or choose to be like a dog and follow what the government tells you to do."


On edit:

Above CAPTION is satire, but if you put his statements together from last week, you'll hear something close to this mash-up (minus the "dog" reference) which reflect his duplicity.

"The government's not there to protect us!" . . . Please come CAPTION F&F's Brian Kilmeade!

Brian ("The rioters have given traitors a bad name" ) Kilmeade is saying: "I wish somebody would point out to me just where in The Constitution it says we even have to have a government! . . . I rest my case!"


Above CAPTION based on this spud claiming the government is not here to protect us, as covered in the following Daily Beast story with a good clip (see 2:20 to the end):


"It's called 'Culling the herd!'" . . . Please come CAPTION Rob Schmitt of Newsmax!

Rob ("Penicillin's for p*ssies" ) Schmitt, "I'm neither pro- nor anti-vax, but I do realize that vaccines are against nature's (and maybe God's) law. . . . After all, diseases are out there for a purpose, . . . like cleaning up the gene pool."


Above CAPTION based on this bozo's interview of a doctor on Newsmax as covered, with a clip, by Media Matters:


"I once nailed a board to my head." . . . Please come CAPTION Sean Hannity!!!

Sean (The One-Man Black Hole) Hannity is saying: "And I'll tell you another thing: If they go door-to-door and come to your house, you better not only hide your guns and your Bible, . . . but if you're pregnant, oh brother! . . . They'll probably try to abort you right there on the spot, . . . right on your front porch.. . . It's impossible to believe!"

"Sure, I got vaccinated, but . . . " Please come CAPTION Tucker Carlson!!!

Tucker Carlson is saying: "People get me wrong: I'm not against the vaccine, I just against people taking it."

"Take two asprin and f*** off!" . . . Please come CAPTON Fox's Dr. Nicole Saphire!!!

Nicole Saphier is saying: "John, I think it's unconscionable for Biden to send our vaccines to Europe, or Africa or anywhere, for that matter. . . . And then he has has the gall to send his jackbooted thugs door door in Missouri trying to scare and brainwash American citizens to getting a vaccine they really don't want. . . . In my objective medical opinion, Biden has blown his response to the pandemic and he keeps doubling down."


Above CAPTION is satire. It was based on the following Fox news story and clip:


The sweet, sweet strains of sedition. . . . Please come CAPTION Mo Brooks!!!

Mo (the reason Missouri is doing so great with COVID) Brooks is saying: "Our soldiers at Valley Forge weren't fighting the British, they were fighting for survival. . . . So I ask you, are you willing to fight for America? . . . Are you willing to fight for America?"


Nothing creative or intentionally satiric in this CAPTION. He actually told the crowd they will have to fight for America (implying: if they want to save it), as this clip at Crooks & Liars shows:


"I can't figure out why the C.I.A. turned down my application." Please come CAPTION Tucker Carlson!

Tucker Carlson is saying: "It seems as though the F.B.I. was Biden's bitch all along."
