Understand. Brittany Griner is now in a better position than she was two days ago. Putin was going to get his kangaroo-court conviction and was going to bask in his opportunity to humiliate us. Nine years was about what I and anyone else familiar with the Russian “justice” system expected. OK. That’s done. Now the U.S. and Russia can get serious about a prisoner exchange. Already Friday morning (it’s 6:12 a.m. as I write), Russia has expressed interest in doing a swap. There is now a moderate to good chance we can get both Griner and Paul Whelan home.

So Trump attorneys are now speaking directly to federal prosecutors, and vice versa. Gee, wonder what they’re talking about.  Hot ‘nuff fawya?

Kyrsten Sinema wouldn’t still go Lucy and pull the football away as Biden’s right foot approaches the ball, would she?  Pardon my lingering skepticism.

Kari Lake has won the Arizona GOP gubernatorial nomination. That’s depressing. She knows it’s all a lie. But she lies. And she continues to lie. And lying is her platform. Lying is her stump speech.

All respect to soon-to-be-former Michigan Congressman Peter Meijer. He was one of the Republicans who followed his conscience, and voted to impeach Trump. It cost him his primary race and thus his seat. How did he handle it? He went out of his way to congratulate his opponent, was gracious and measured in defeat and blamed no one else. That’s a man. I hope he achieves national prominence. His is a voice that should be heard.

BTW. Meijer may have lost in part because of Dems’ diabolical and unethical decision to pour money into his opponent’s campaign. Disgusting. And anything but patriotic.

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.
