About Me

I'm an old professor, having taught at the university level in Louisiana for over 30 years. I've written 4 chapbooks and 5 full-sized books (all listed as poetrythough 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. 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).

Jump-start a Sunday! . . . Please come CAPTION Rand Paul!!!

Rand ("My daddy can run away faster than your daddy!") Paul is saying: "They say I have no issues, that all I talk about is bashing Hillary all the time. . . . That's simply not true! . . . In fact I have at least as many issues as Hillary . . . . 'cause whatever she's for, I'm against, and vice versa. . . . For the simple reason that she's a witch sworn to uphold the rule of Satan. . . . and she's has taken an oath to bring this country down. . . . No issues? Ha! . . . My critics couldn't be more wrong!"


Above CAPTION based on the following Crooks & Liars story:


The lobotomy worked! . . . Please come CAPTION Bernie Goldberg on O'Reilly!!!

Bernie ("I might not be your worst nightmare, but I rank!") Goldberg is saying: "They call me twisted, but the liberals redefine that very term. . . . Hillary won't receive as much press enthusiasm as Obama did in '08, because race, in their minds, trumps gender, . . . but if she all of a sudden announced she was transgendered (and that's what I'm predicting) then someone would have to a black, homicidal child molester to attract more support, but if you were full-on pathological like a felonious, migrant, toe-sucking, hermaphroditic terrorist . . . , well, . . . you get the picture, Bill. . . . And they call me twisted!!!"


Above CAPTION based on the following Media Matters story:


"You might catch something." . . . .Please come CAPTION Rick Santorum!!!!

Rick ("Can you even begin to imagine what they must do?") Santorum is saying: "I'm not a gay bigot! . . . I only said I wouldn't attend a gay wedding. . . . That's all. . . They are probably decent human beings but, I mean, . . . .I wouldn't know what was expected of me. . . . Am I supposed to strip-off and join in? . . . Am I supposed to service only the groom? . . . And which one would that be? . . . No, I'm not a gay bigot, . . . It's just too confusing."

"King would have loved religious freedom laws!" . . . Please come CAPION Louie Gohmert!!

Louie ("The kids used to call me 'Loogie.' . . . What could that have meant?") Gohmert just finished saying: "Liberals and activists don't care about Martin Luther King Jr. . . . In fact, its the conservatives who are preserving his legacy. . . . What would King have done without racism? . . . Huh?. . . By legalizing bigotry, challenging African-Americans' right to vote, and supporting robust police methods in urban communities, conservatives continually provide the context for appreciating that great man!"


Above CAPTION Based on the following Crooks & Liars story:


T.G.T.G.T.G.I.F. . . . . Please come CAPTION Scott Walker!!!

Scott ("My dreams are filled with robots going mad. . . . What do you suppose that means?") Walker is saying, "Paul, to be fair, I really, really, really know that my support has taken a nosedive, to say the least, . . . . But what you don't know is the size of the geriatric vote, specifically the dementia and Alzheimer cases. . . . Somebody's going to be surprised . . . and some day soon!"

A stain on the map of human intelligence! . . . Please come CAPTION Ann Coulter!!

Ann ("The only cats I like are dead") Coulter is saying: "Well, Sean, a good question on a literacy text given in order to vote would be something like: Police officers are here to protect and serve the citizens, right? or Hard work and perseverance will be financially rewarded in a Capitalist country like the United States. True or False? . . . . It's not hard at all to design easy tests of people's knowledge which is fair and balanced for all. . . . See?"


Above CAPTION based on the following Media Matters story:


Less than the square root of minus-impossible-one. . . . Please come CAPTION The Donald!!!

Donald ("No hyperbole got nothing on me!") Trump is saying: "It's almost impossible to exaggerate how wretchedly terrible Obama has been as President of the United States, Elizabeth. He's sold our birthright of freedom to such entities as the E.P.A., the N.A.A.C.P, N.O.W, associations of trial lawyers, nutritionists, and tree-huggers. He's made the United States look like roadkill on the world stage. . . . Our enemies are creaming their jeans and our friends are locking their anal hatches, if you know what I mean. . . And what's worst of all . . . Obama doesn't believe Jesus was a predatory Capitalist! . . . As I said, Elizabeth, it's almost impossible to make this stuff up!"


Above CAPTION Based on the following NewsHounds story:


"Au contraire: Happiness is a HOT gun!" . . . Please come CAPTION Wayne LaPierre!!!

Wayne (I'm so white, I get blinded looking in the mirror") LaPierre is saying: "Listen, the N.R.A. is neither racist or sexist, and I resent it when people call us that! . . . But if you look closely, it's the same people who shoved an African-American down our throats for a President, and want to do so with a women! . . . Imagine!"


Above CAPTION based (rather closely, unfortunately) on the following Media Matters story:


'My 'Yes Men' are even expressing grave doubts." . . . Please come CAPTION Bill O'Reilly!!!!

Bill ("Even in my dreams I try to fall back asleep") O'Reilly is saying: "And here's the tip of the day. . . . No charges of lying against me stuck, and that's why I'm talking to you right now, . . . whereas you don't hear Brian Williams saying anything do you? . . . Enough said. . . . Besides, everybody has already forgotten about it."

"But I play a person in the movies." . . . Please come CAPTION Tucker Carlson!!!

Tucker ("I wish I had a nickel for every bow-tie I own") Carlson is saying: "Who does she think she's kidding, Brian? . . . No way! . . . Just because some slap-happy, sk*nky-*ss b*tch who probably likes to thread the noodle and baste the porkchops, if you know what I mean, wants me to, I'm not going to criticize my brother in public. . . . That's that! . . . Sure, ****s like her, don't care what they say and do, . . . she's like all the other sex-addled, libelous m************ s******** in New York, . . . but I've got morals!!!"
