Chris Wallace has freed himself from Fox. So now Fox has freed itself of its only credible journalist. I’m sure both parties are delighted, and envision bright futures.

Funny how all of a sudden Rand Paul supports federal relief funds, isn’t it? Actually, it’s not funny at all. It’s disgusting, as is he. I rue Paul.

It’s right there in the e-mail. No need to speculate. National Guard troops were called in advance regarding Jan. 6 specifically to protect “pro-Trump people.”  Not only a violation of federal and Constitutional equal protection laws, but expositive of motive, intent and pre-planning of an insurrection whose intent was to overthrow the government of the United States. Thank you, Mr. Meadows. You are the very definition of “useful idiot.”

I hope you’ll check out the new RR podcast that dropped this morning on this website and all major podcast distributors.  Texas public education is an embarrassment, and it’s about to get worse. Our educational deficiencies are not only our biggest statewide problem, they are the foundation of every single one of our (many) other problems.

Longtime education visionary Dr. Jim Largent lets it fly—unfiltered—on Radically Rational the Podcast.

  1. I worked with a guy who worked with Chris Wallace. Whenever he saw him on the air my friend would remark, “Now there’s a real professional.” So true. I hope Wallace lands somewhere where his talents are appreciated. Somewhere where he can practice real journalism. Don’t get me wrong, his Fox show was a MUST-watch in our house. He asked the tough questions and brooked no phony answers. I don’t care where he lands I just want him back on-the-air as soon as possible.

Paul's Bio

I clearly have the attention span of your median fruit fly.Look! Airplane!

Sorry. I’m back.

It’s both a curse and a blessing. I’ve never bought this stuff about, “He who dies with the most toys wins.” But I do think that a wide range of life experiences helps us grow as people, and helps us better relate to other people. I’ve been fortunate. And I am beyond grateful.

I show up on time. I go like hell. I’m a good listener. I hold myself accountable. I own my mistakes. And I have a natural and an insatiable curiosity. I’m never afraid to say, “I don’t know,” when I don’t. But then I try to find out.

The flip side is I’m a lousy ballroom dancer and my clothes sometimes fit me funny.

Stuff matters to me. I care. But while I take that stuff seriously, I try hard to never take myself seriously. As a result, I have sometimes been told, “Paul, it’s hard to tell when you’re serious and when you’re just having some fun. Which is it? Serious or fun?”

My answer is “yes.” But I think that is a legitimate criticism. I promise I’m going to work on that.

This has been the quickest and strangest half-century I’ve ever experienced. During that period, I’ve been afforded amazing opportunities in news and sports journalism across all platforms. I have taught wonderful students at the high school and collegiate level. Always, I learned more from them than they did from me. I’ve been a high school administrator. I spent ten seasons as a high school varsity football coach. I’ve been an advertising executive. I’ve hosted nationally syndicated television entertainment shows. In maybe the biggest honor I ever received, I was selected by NASA to be “Chet The Astronaut” for the “Land The Shuttle” simulator at Space Center Houston. (All I can say there, is “Do as I say, not as I do.” I put that thing in the Everglades more often than not.) Most recently, I just wrapped up a decade as a television news director, during which time our teams distinguished themselves in holding the powerful accountable, achieving both critical and ratings success.

What does all that mean? It means I am profoundly grateful. It also means I’m ready for “next.” So here we are. Radically Rational. It’s an idea I woke up with in 2017. I scribbled “Radically Rational” on a piece of notebook paper and used a magnet to stick it on our refrigerator. I saw it every day, and it just would not leave me alone.

I am second in charge at Radically Rational, LLC. My wife, Jo (also known as BB), is the president. Clearly, I have failed in my attempt to sleep my way to the top of this organization.

I hope you will learn that I’m loyal as a Labrador. But I will admit that this doggie can bite every now and then. My promise to you? I will show up on time. I will go like hell. I will listen to you earnestly and attentively. I will hold myself accountable. I will never be the least bit hesitant to say, “I don’t know,” when I don’t.

But then I’ll try to find out. Let’s do it.
