You have nothing to be Proud of, Boys. You are traitors. And in earlier times, you would swing. And we all know it don’t mean a thang if it ain’t got that swang.

The Orange Turd is already getting his “Fraud, Hoax, Witch Hunt, Fake News, Liberal Mainstream Media, Nuh-uhhh!” band together. Why? Because what you are going to hear Thursday night will be air-tight in the judgment of any rational American citizen. But after you factor out “rational,” Trump still has his Cult.

“Survival” is a relative term. Politically, you are still Dead Man Walking, Boris Johnson.

Elon Musk is threatening to walk away from the Twitter deal. In the words of Colonel Henry Blake in the movie, M*A*S*H*,  “Then goddammit, Hot Lips, resign your goddamn commission.”  A little more wine, My Dear?”

Yeah, Manchin is an asshole, and a bully. But he may be the key to actually getting something done with respect to common sense gun regulations.

The Ukraine thing is at a crossroads. We gotta figure this out.

How bad is it?  Hell, it’s so bad you can’t even lie to Congress if you’re a Republican. Don’t get mad at me. I’m not the author of that direct quote.

Be advised. By 9 p.m Tuesday, Herb Alpert (whom I love and respect to the heights) will nevertheless be back on the street and have to eat his lunch all by himself.

“New in town, Lani?”

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.
