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).

"'Objectivity' is just a word, thank you." . . . Please come CAPTION Howard Kurtz!!!!

Howard ("Why has no one told Hannibal Lecter's side?") Kurtz is saying: "And of course, this week the media completely ignored one side in their coverage of the Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality. . . . I watched but never saw them interview one child raped by a homosexual man. . . . Never once did I see them interview a Neo-Nazi or a Charlie's Angel representative! . . . And what about that guy in California who started the Execute Gays movement? . . . Did you ever see him during the coverage? . . . I sure didn't! . . . So much for our so-call 'objective media'!"


Above CAPTION based on the following Crooks & Liars story with a Fox clip:


"My falafel is leaking again." . . . Please come CAPTION Bill O'Reilly!!!

Bill ("When I do it, it's not rape! Got it?") O'Reilly is saying: "It's really simple, Bernie. It's not hypocrisy for me to refuse to answer questions by left-wing zealots while still demanding precise answers from anyone who comes on this show for one very simple reason: . . . this is 'The No Spin Zone!' . . . Out there, they're just playing a game of gottja while spinning all over the place. . . . "Hypocrisy,' geez! . . . Maybe my critics should look in a dictionary once in a while!"


Above CAPTION based on the following Media Matters story with a Fox clip:


"Guess why there's an unflattering stereotype for every ethic group?" Come CAPTION The Donald!!!

Donald ("I only defecate gold bullion.") Trump is saying "I don't know how anyone has the gall to call me a racist! . . . . Just because 'I call 'em like I see 'em,' . . . and I see Mexicans in general (and by that I mean most of them) down a dozen or so rungs from civilized humanity. . . . See? . . . I'm not calling anybody names? . . . Therefore I ain't no damned racist. . . . End of freaking story!"

The author of Killing Cognition!!! . . . Please come CAPTION Bill O'Reilly!!!

Bill ("I wish I was here") O'Reilly is saying: "Listen, I'm trying to be non-partisan here. . . . Let me just say this, if Hillary Clinton is elected President of the United States, she will appoint Supreme Court justices who will shred all remaining religious liberty, she'll created an EPA Gestapo which will strangle business and bring capitalism to its knees, and she' institute state-ordered abortions for all those she deems unfit or politically undesirable. . . . It might seem outlandish, but there it is! . . . That's my bipartisan take on our possible future!"


Above CAPTION Based on the following Fox clip at Media Matters:


In the beginning there was Adam, and Eve, and the serpent. . . . Please come CAPTION Ann Coulter!


Ann ("It's just an apple.") Coulter is saying: "What can I tell you, Bill? Trump's right! . . . When he's talking about Mexican illegal immigrants, he's hit the nail hard on the head. . . . And hell no, it's not 'racist to point out what's obvious.' . . . Pedro is packing, pure and simple. He's raping little girls on both sides of the border. . . . His women are prostitutes with terrible diseases. . . . Statistics bear me out. . . . Just look them up! . . . . Sure, there might be one or two immigrants who want a better life in the United States, but the vast majority is composed of lawless scum. . . . Just how is it racist, I'd like to know, to point out that one simple fact?"


Above CAPTION based on the following NewsHounds story:


"I'm so normal, it makes me HOT!!!" . . . Please come CAPTION Neil Cavuto!!

Neil (The Wall Street Rapper) Cavuto is saying: "Listen, you have to be some kind of abnormal freak to believe in climate change, pure and simple. . . . It's logical. . . . Only normal people can see the world as it is. . . . Two, there is no climate change in the world as it is. . . . Therefore only normal people know there's no such thing as climate change. . .See how easy it is? . . . And they want us to believe that they went to college. . . . Imagine!"


Above CAPTION based on the following NewsHounds story and Fox clip:


My sheets are at the laundry. . . .Please come CAPTION a "friend of the Klan"!!!!

This friend ("Only a real friend will knife you in the back and not twist the blade") of the Klan is saying: "Listen, Paula, first they'll insist the Confederate flag has to come down. . . Then they'll make us take down all the statues of brave Confederate generals. . . . After that they'll try to outlaw burning crosses. . . . And finally, they'll try to make nighttime lynching illegal! . . . Imagine!"

"Up is the new down if you turn it all around." . . . Please come CAPTION Kevin Jackson on Fox!!!

Kevin ("Selling my birthright? . . . You gotta be kidding. . . . I'm cashing in.") Jackson is saying: "It should be obvious. The left wing press label Dylann Roof as a right-wing extremist because they don't want to own up to the fact the he was a left-wing nutcake! . . . I mean figure it out. . . . Roof was the product of a left-wing educational system. . . Roof was raised during a period dominated by the left-wing media. . . . Roof had probably National Public Radio brainwashing him since he was born. . . And to top it off, Roof watched films made in Hollywood. . . . Dylann Roof was obviously a left-wing zealot. . . . Where have I gone wrong?"


The above CAPTION is based on the following Fox clip on Media Matters:


He's such a tight-*ss, when he f*rts, only the dogs can hear! Please come CAPTION Tony Perkins!

Tony ("Today, Christ would be packing.") Perkins is saying: "You're right, Megyn, the Supreme Court's decision on gay marriage actually means less freedom in America. . . . No longer is a straight baker able to refuse to service a gay wedding (where he might even be asked to 'join in'). . . . No longer can a Christian barber refuse to cut the perfumed locks of some simmering sexual aberration. . . . No longer can a Catholic gun owner scare the piss out of a prancing queer by pointing his AK-47 at him . . . No longer can we deny inheritance benefits to some puff who will spend all the money on bath houses and Wesson Oil. . . . Well, you get point, Megyn. . . It sounds like the Supreme Court came down on the side of more freedom, but it really made the rest of us bound by the will of the fruitcakes!"

A tiny frog in a tiny pond. . . . Please come CAPTION Bobby Jindal!!!

Governor Bobby ("This lobotomy was the best idea I ever had!") Jindal is saying: "Calm down! . . . Calm down! . . . Someone mis-heard me to say I'd eliminate the Supreme Court. . . . Nothing could be farther from the truth. . . . That's just the left trying to paint me as a radical, right-wing idiot! . . . What I really said was we should privatize the Supreme Court, then we could make tax money off them (and they could put up little booths and stuff to sell things to the tourists, and a coffee shop, maybe some tanning beds or rides) instead of spending untold millions on them every year. . . . And if they were private, then they'd agree with us 95% of the time! . . . Or we could make it in their interest. . . . That's a win-win-win if thee ever was one! . . Just how is that so radical??"
