Lotsa speculation and unconfirmed reports about the whereabouts of Wagner leader Yevgeny Prigozhin. It’s the stuff about wigs that caught my attention.

Again, I pose this question. How can the myriad investigations into Trump’s abuse of power be “merely politically motivated” when all of the hard evidence has been provided by Republicans, many of them former Trumpers?

Can’t answer that one, can you?

More video surfaces of document boxes being moved around at Mar-a-Lago. What can you tell us about this, Walt?  “Nauta damn thing.” (Why can’t the man find a lawyer in Florida?)  You know what they always say. “One man’s ‘body man’ is another man’s valet.” Fetch me my ascot, Walter. And bring me a quarter pounder with cheese.

Former Arizona Speaker of the House Rusty Bowers will end up being a hero in all this, as likely will be former Arizona Governor Doug Ducey. Both Republicans.

I consider wasting time to be sinful. Nobody is more guilty of wasting their time and ours than Mike Pence and Ron DeSantis. Seriously. What are they thinking? What is their strategy? How do they see any personal political opportunity here? They are both walking toward dead ends.

Neither can out-Trump Trump. Especially since they are both deathly afraid of Trump.

Chris Christie is not afraid of Trump. Oh, he won’t win. But he may very well be instrumental in preventing Trump from winning. Trump is afraid of the fact that Christie is not afraid of him.

You’re busted. Yeah, I’m talking to you, Bubba. I’m pretty sure it was you who planted the blow at the White House. Oh, I don’t have any evidence. But you’ve taught me that evidence is never required if you want something badly enough.

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.
