Putin is cornered. Desperate, even. He will never voluntarily or peacefully relinquish power. The West must remain resolute in its resistance and opposition to his murderous oppression.  But we must also be prepared for unprecedented escalation. This could be a tipping point in world history.

If indeed the leaks in those Russian pipelines under the Baltic Sea that carry gas to Europe are the result of Russian sabotage, we are already witnessing a spreading conflict. Winter is coming.

Ironically, our best chance of keeping Putin in check may be China.

Of all the professional and recreational “deniers” out there, none are more arrogantly ignorant than Climate Change Deniers. This is just math and science, idiots, not that you pay attention to either.

As I’m typing, Ian’s sustained winds just jumped to 155 mph. We may end up needing a “Category 6” for this one.

All as global glaciers are melting and receding at a record rate. All that water is going to have to go somewhere, right?

Here’s what we know about convicted Jan. 6 riotous insurrectionist traitors. They cry and beg like babies in seeking legal leniency, but they have absolutely no true remorse. I have two words for them. And one of them is “them.”  Yeah, 86 months in the hole seems to be about right for me.

Why do we have to go through these frequent and regular “shut down the government” votes? That is the pinnacle of systemic dysfunction and incompetence.

I do know this. Our country cannot survive elections overseen by political partisan hacks who have the arbitrary ability to simply overturn any results they don’t like. I do know that. But, hell, apparently even Mitch McConnell knows that.

Kenny Boy Paxton says it’s the media that should be ashamed of themselves. That’s a good one…

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.
