I hope you have checked the standings and box scores lately. LeGrange L’Orange is on a long and ever-lengthening losing streak. Probably because he’s a loser, would be my guess. And he has no “stopper” in his rotation.

Trump is now virtually certain to face criminal charges in Georgia. And he is virtually certain to be convicted. Why? Because he’s already admitted the whole damn thing. And it’s on tape.

I love the “Let’s move on” crowd. Not really. Why does getting to the bottom of the 2020 Big Lie matter? Because the same traitors who did it last time are trying to set up a network to do it again. And absent our vigilance, they may very well succeed. I wish I could take credit for a meme that I saw Monday. “The road to fascism is lined by people telling you you’re overreacting.”  No Big Deal, right?  Rejected, with extreme prejudice.

Yellen: “I was wrong.” I respect that.

Biden has screwed the pooch and put the ball on the ground several times. And I’ve called him out on each occasion. But to date he has done a masterful job of managing U.S. involvement and interests in Ukraine. Masterful. Yesterday’s announcement that we will continue to send sophisticated arms to Ukraine but will NOT provide missiles that could reach Russian soil is the way you do that. Pitch perfect.

Uvalde: Are the liars worse than the incompetent cowards, or the other way around? Inquiring minds want to know.

Gun Worshipers stress that the shooter bought both of his weapons legally. That’s the whole POINT, delberts.

A secret city council swearing-in ceremony? Did they execute the secret handshake, too? Was everyone wearing their Decoder Rings?

Yes, I’m going to keep hammering this. No, I’m not going to let it go. Don’t fall for this, “We are not going to address this problem by taking away the Constitutional rights of law-abiding Americans.”

Nobody is proposing that. Exactly nobody.

But they continue to sing their anthem. “This little gaslight of mine. I’m gonna let it shine!”

Did you see the picture of Abbott posing and grinning while attempting to perform a sex act on an assault rifle? The pic said everything. Except what he thinks it said.

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.
