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).

Get your heart medication at hand. . . . Then please come CAPTION Fox darling Larry Elder!!

Larry ("Slavery was just a little misunderstanding in history.") Elder is saying, "You're right, Bill, I don't think there's any racism in America today. . . . None! . . . And let me tell you why. . . . Studies show black people use the 'N' word approximately 12.8 times more often to refer to fellow black people often than whites use it. . . . Further, black people tend to act out and yell at the police and other authorizes all the time, like they're begging for a beating . . . In short, if black people would act more like white people, you'd see an end of racial strife in this country. . . The real racism can be seen in the war on white males!!!! . . . Why, let me tell you . . ."


Above CAPTION loosely based on the following Media Matters story:


"Even my tapeworm has a personality!" . . . Please come CAPTION Sarah Palin!!!

Sara ("Sometimes I get my mind all mixed up with what I'm saying to whoever it is I'm talking with unless it's in a dream. . . . Just how is that crazy?") Palin is saying: "Well, Megyn, if you want to know the truth, Tina Fey owes me big time! . . . After all, what is she but a talentless frump who would be changing beds in some nursing home now if it wasn't for me? . . . . But what really bothers me is her ego! She thinks the world revolves around her! . . . Imagine! . . . I say again, Megyn, without me she'd be seen as the little, insignificant nothing that she is!"


Above CAPTION based on the following Huffington Post story:


The Original T*rd in the Punchbowl! . . . Please come CAPTION Rush Limbaugh!!!!

Rush (The opposite of much to be desired) Limbaugh is saying: "Listen, bozo, I'm very far from 'kidding!' Ferguson scandal is like the Benghazi scandal in so many ways it's heard to count, but just to name the major correspondences: 1.) they are both in congested urban areas where community activists and terrorists like to hang out (often, in fact, it's hard to tell them apart); 2.) the Obama Administration orchestrated them both, from initial provocation to continual incitement to 'America's heartfelt apology'. . . just wait; and 3.) they are both manifestly and intentionally, dastardly and most obviously . . . distractions from Obamacare! . . . It should be obvious to anyone who even cares to open his or her eyes occasionally. . . But that doesn't include you, bozo, does it?"


Above CAPTION based loosely on the following Media Matters story (actually on the photo alone):


Turn your manic all the way up! . . . Then please come CAPTION Karl Rove!!!!

Karl ("Mama used to say when I bent over in the buff she couldn't tell the difference. What do you think she meant by that?") Rove is saying: "Listen, it was all Obama's fault in the first place, praising these rap gangsters telling all everyone to 'act up' and be thugs. . . . . Then one 'acts up' and tries to beat down and possibly kill a policeman . . . and he gets shot in the process. . . Well, the place explodes as we all know! . . . Now, just when things were beginning to die down, Obama makes two speeches designed to enflame the rioters once again by talking about their side, and their problems, virtually ignoring the heroic efforts of the police . . . and to top it off he sends his brother Holder down just to make sure there's plenty of gas on hand to feed the flames. . . . And he thought he could put one over on me!!!"


Above CAPTION loosely based upon the following Media Matters story:


"What caliber is _your_ an*l plug?" . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's top cop, Mark Fuhrman!!!

Mark ("Logic is just a four-letter word") Fuhrman is saying: "Well, Megyn, it's entirely plausible that Michael Brown attacked the officer without provocation, just 'cause he was feeling rowdy or he didn't like something in the officer's tone of voice, . . . then it's certainly likely he would shoved the officer violently backward into the car's side and struggle for his pistol, . . . And, yes, it is even more thant highly plausible that while fleeing after he was unsuccessful, he would turn back after hearing the officer shooting at him so he can attack him once again, this time under fire. . . . Just what's so unlikely about that anyway?"


Following CAPTION based of the following Crooks & Liars story:


"Make mine merde." . . . Please come CAPTION Fox News Radio's Todd Starnes!!!!

Todd ("What's so wrong with using rubber under-sheets?") Starnes is saying: "It should be obvious, Geraldo. . . . Obama had someone sell Michael Brown some really killer weed . . . which I wouldn't be surprised was laced with something like PCP's or animal steroids. . . .(Just wait until the toxicology report comes out!!! ) . . . Then, when he was high and out of his mind, Obama ordered one of this thug brothers in Ferguson punk him so he'd act out and attack the police, . . . Then Obama had Justice order that Brown's body be left in the street for over four hours to wildly enflame the crowds and place was ready to explode, . . . then he sent Sharpton in. . . . Well, the rest is history. . . . It's got Obama written all over it!! . . . It should be as plain as a lobotomy!"


Above CAPTION loosely based on the following Media Matters story:


"Going to the store is like going to the front!" . . . Please come CAPTION our rabid N.R.A. shopper!

Blue Balls ("I stuff spikes in my undies just to stay in good humor") Ballistics is saying: "Listen, you laugh, but what if an armored car full of terrorists came through that brick wall right now? . . . Huh????. . . . Or an alien with arms that shoots lasers that explode people in two comes down that aisle?????. . . . You gotta be prepared. . . . And realistic! . . . Don't you know what can happen? . . . Haven't you ever been to the movies??"

"Hold them up in the air!! . . . High!" . . . Come CAPTION Ferguson's Police Chief Thomas Jackson!!!

Ferguson Police Chief is saying: "To answer your questions in turn: . . . No! . . . The Ferguson Police Force is not overly armed! . . . You never know when an invasion, like by aliens, can happen. . . . Or when zombies begin turning your children into their demonic weapons! . . . Haven't you ever gone to the movies? . . . What are you going to do then? . . . If anything, we need more arms like rocket launchers, and more armed troop carriers. . . . Why, I'm still waiting to hear on a request for five gross of claymores. . . . And another resounding 'No' to your second question. . . . S.W.A.T.'s response was not over-bearing or brutal. . . . On the contrary, we've been as gentle as you can expect. . . . After all, we've kept from napalming the crowd, didn't we? . . . at least up to now!"

Where have all the founder gone? . . . Please come CAPTION Brian Kilmeade!!

Brian ("I gotta jar of dirt in my dressing room") Kilmeade is saying: "You're right, Steve: if these lily-livered politicians in Ferguson and the state of Missouri didn't cave when they got a just little bit of criticism, the S.W.A.T. teams would have gotten things under control in short order, probably a couple more days and nights, . . . maybe a week. . . . Sure, they'd have to knock a few heads, . . . but now it's worse! . . . . With the state police marching alongside them, arm-in-arm so to speak, everything seems calm. . . . The rioters have gotten what they wanted all along: to back-down authority, 'The Man.' . . . So now more black communities are encouraged to riot and we'll have a dozen Fergusons all over at the same time, each and every week, mark my words. . . . Ironically, Steve, it turns out that peace is far, far worse than violence. . . Who would believe it?"


Above CAPTION based only on what I know these clowns would say if they thought they could get away with it. (I've not yet watched the news this morning.)

Mental water boarding for the whole family! . . .Please come CAPTION Sean Hannity!!!

Sean ("My head is on my other foot") Hannity is saying: "What I want to know is how come everyone's so down on the police all of sudden! . . . I'm not saying that they're always right. . . . Heck they're all different individuals, so a couple are liable to slip up occasionally and accidently shoot someone like a kid or get a bit rough and beat up an elderly couple. . . . But when you see what they're up against!!! . . . Hell, unarmed teenagers, reporters, citizens filming their every move, a sullen citizenry, public criticism. . . . You name it! . . . I say we need more S.W.A.T units and heavier weaponry!! "
