Paul and I grew up together on Letitia St. in Baton Rouge. He had an older sister, Elinor, who insisted that all the kids in the neighborhood learn to dance. We were pre-teens then.

Joe and I spent time with Paul and Ed in the living room at a Zeagler family birthday gathering. I must say these two brothers are like secret national treasures.

Rest In Peace, dear one.

Paul Zeagler & I met in 2002 at breakfast in Zacks, Zacks being at the intersection of wild & crazy, fun behavior, and serious world-changing discussions on Geopolitical conditions.
The Roasters Cafe meet-ups were great with even better visiting, fun, and discussions.
I learned so much from Paul, the Doctor of Philosophy and Economicsand Life.
Dr Z is one of the great ones! And one we really hate to lose. I've had good words of condolences from old & young,...

Please accept my condolences to the family of Paul...
