Certainly, that was a terrorist attack Tuesday in Brooklyn. And I’m both glad and relieved that Frank James faces federal terrorism charges.

I’ll give credit to BB for this observation. The Russians say a fire just spontaneously broke out aboard one of its most powerful warships. Ukrainians say that probably had something to do with the cruise missile they smacked that ship with. Nope. That’s the Russians’ story, and they’re sticking to it. Spontaneous fire. BB, without looking up from her phone: “Those Russian F-Troop clowns actually think their bullshit fire story makes them look better?”

This stuff really is out of the old Nazi and Soviet playbook. Accuse others of that which you are clearly guilty, and get out front with it. And never blink as you lie your ass off. In fact, the bigger the lie, the better it is and the more effective it is. Mark Meadows has been yapping like a chihuahua about “voter fraud” and a “stolen election” since November of 2020. While there’s little to no evidence of any widespread voter fraud that could have impacted the legitimate results of that election, there is now incontrovertible evidence that Meadows has personally committed voter fraud.

Another Jan. 6 seditious insurrectionist traitor says he thought he was following presidential orders, and that he had to do something to “gain his respect.” That legal “defense” is not gonna work. But it’s sure as hell going to advance the case against Trump.

Turns out Trump Mafia wasn’t just squeezing the Georgia Secretary of State. Nope. They took their decertification plot straight to the governor. “Stop the Steal”?  Look in the mirror, traitors. The only attempted larceny was yours.

This is Abbott’s Border Bottleneck, and nobody else’s. The resulting price hikes are on him. The economic damage is on him. The fun part is that all this incessant pandering, grandstanding and stuntsmanship is blowing up in his face, politically. Seems big business doesn’t like this, and may well pull their Abbott endorsements. Maybe Abbott should put himself on a bus to D.C. for some meditation time.

Yeah. I’ve seen the video from Grand Rapids, Michigan. And I saw what I saw. An execution.

You ready for the next COVID spike? Because it’s coming.

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.
