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).

"I have a wet dream!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("I've cornered the golden toilet-bowl market!")Trump is saying: "Just like Dr. Martin Luther King spoke to the nation about racial tolerance and perseverance in the face of adversity, I'm here today to extend his great message to include strong police forces, no-nonsense judges, voter ID laws, stop-and-frisk policies, robust entitlement reform, and great leaders in our forefathers' image! . . . Now they'll have to name streets all over America after me!"


Above CAPTION based on the following story in The Hill:


"It's not deceit. It's making a sale." . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("I love people and potato salad!") Trump is thinking: "After I'm in, it's Goodbye Social Security!!!! . . . Freakin' old farts!. . . . They think they're entitled to a cozy living, but like I asked Paul two weeks back, what right does anyone have to anything? . . . They just want a free ride. . . . Rat-bastards!!!"


Above CAPTION based on the following DU posting and Huffington Post story:



"Sure, I'll debate Sanders . . . NOT!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!

Donald ("You want specifics? I'll give you specifics! How's this: 38-24-32?") Trump is saying: "Am I afraid of Bernie?? . . . Are you kidding? I'd slaughter him! . . . But I changed my mind and now I won't debate him despite the money going to charity, despite giving Hillary jab in the gut, despite having an opportunity to put my great ideas out there, and despite raising my profile even higher, . . . because I decided it's beneath me. . . . See? . . . It's certainly not because I'm frightened of him!!! . . . Whatever gave you that fool idea?"

"Geez. There's always been an environment. Case solved!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!

Donald ("Smog is just air that got tired of hiding") Trump is saying: "So I want to ask these so-called environmentalists: If you're so smart, tell me how much we're going to enjoy the environment if there are no cars to drive, no coal to mine, no oil to drill, no fuel burning plants, no petroleum refineries, no factories with smokestacks, no nothing! . . . What are they going to do? Play with their toes?"


Above CAPTION based on the following Huffington Post story:


"I'm one-thousand-and-ten-percent legal!" Please come CAPTION Trump's Spokesperson Katrina Pierson!

Katrina ("I love it when he shuns me!") Pierson is saying: "On the contrary, the Hispanics love Trump. . . . They absolutely ladore him!!! . . . The problem is the press. . . . They only tell one part of the story, so Hispanics can't get to know him, . . . so they don't yet realize how much they love him. . . . If it weren't for the press reporting what he says, . . . well, you get the drift."


Above CAPTION based on the following Crooks and Liars story with a healthy clip:


"You call it insomnia. I call it opportunity!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!

Donald (This is your mind on no sleep) Trump is saying: "Okay, folks, what's wrong with not sleeping? . . . I mean you can get tons of more things done! . . . And you're wound-up a bit too so you're thinking faster which is better and more which is always better as well so you get more thinking-stuff done which is better-prime and moreover is fantastic so you don't need to stop no matter what people say I mean what do they know? . . . They're all sleepers. . . . They take a third-of-the-day off! . . . They don't know anything!!!. . . . I mean, give me a break!"


Above CAPTION based on the following Huffington Post story:


"Hey, Mister Tax Man, . . . bite me!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("The IRS should be paying me!") Trump is saying: "Hey, Jimmy, give me a break, will you? . . . . I know I said presidential candidates should disclose their tax forms and four years ago encouraged Mitt to do the same, . . . And I know I said I would certainly release mine if I ran and then repeated that several times after I announced my candidacy, . . . But all that was just a suggestion. . . . You know, it was like a memo-to-self. . . . Well, one day I read it over. . . . I chuckled. . . . I thought it was cute but stupid, . . . so I tore it up."

In his yearbook: "Voted most likely to be class clown forever." Please Come CAPTION Jesse Waters!!

Jesse ("What do scientists know, anyway?") Waters is saying: "So Bill, I asked officials just how the teaching of climate science in the Portland school system will be fair and balanced if they only teach the truth? . . . And do you know what, Bill? . . . They didn't know what to say. . . . They just stammered and looked at me funny. . . . Here, watch the clip. . . ."


Above CAPTION based on the following Crooks and Liars piece with a clip of Sophomore Jesse spewing his toxic brew:


"Rising sea levels?. . . Seriously? . . . Give me a break!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!

Donald (" . . . or your lying eyes?") Trump is saying: "And folks, they want us to believe in man-made climate change! . . . Give me a break! . . . That's the greatest hoax in the history of mankind! . . . And over 97% of so-called climate scientists, people who often dedicated their lives to discovering the truth in their adolescence, have sold out simply to gain tenure and to be awarded grants! . . . Hell, it's hard to get 60% of a group of people to agree on anything, much less to get 97% to go against their core principles! . . . It's impossible to believe!!! . . . But there it is."

"Finding nothing PROVES there's something!" . . . Please come CAPTION Trey Gowdy!!!

Trey ("I can lie in my sleep") Gowdy is saying: "I would tell our critics, Megyn, that The House Judiciary Committee investigating the Benghazi incident was completely impartial, no matter what they say. . . . And while it is true we found no 'stand-down order,' no mis- or malfeasance on part of anyone, and no hint of a cover-up of what wasn't there to cover up in the first place, . . . we still know that Secretary Clinton is hiding something. . . . How impartial can you get?"
