Carl Paladino says you can't tell the good guys from the bad guys anymore, that's why you need a guy like him around to point them out.

He was a regular kid who grew up in Buffalo's East Lovejoy neighborhood in the 40's and 50's, became a lawyer and wealthy real estate developer and then later in life turned his attention to trying to make a difference.

Making a difference, good or bad, depends on how you feel about the outspoken Buffalo Board of Education member.  Paladino certainly can rub a lot of people the wrong way, but he says he's only doing what he believes is the right thing to do.  He says his only goal here is to try and make life better for everyone in Buffalo and western New York.

Keith Radford sits down with the controversial figure to try and see just who this man really is and why he does the things he does.  Watch part one right now with part two coming tomorrow night right here at "wkbw.com"
