Right Column Redux:  Paul Schindler on TV
Not Really Labor

All The Different Me’s: 90s, 00s and 10s Paul

I was riding the weight merry-go round between 200 and 300 pounds. That’s a wide range, but the tux I bought with my $3,000 winnings from the TV game show Scrabble proves to be sturdy, versatile, and easily taken in and out.

My daughters became young women, and I could enjoy them in a whole new way: as intellectual peers with rich and interesting lives. As for my marriage, I spent every day thanking God I had chosen my wife for her mind and personality, and for the blessing that those things came wrapped in a lovely package.

My radio dream came true, in a way, briefly, during 1997, when I hosted the weekly program Life on Line radio in syndication. I did 13 programs; I might as well have been talking to myself through a curved tube, since no one ever picked it up.

The 90s were spent at various posts within the soon-to-vanish CMP universe. Then, I did my “give back” stint of a decade teaching 8th grade U.S. history. Nothing will teach you humility faster than standing in front of 30 teenagers and asking them to learn something.
