BUZ LIVINGSTON: Let us give thanks

Published: Tuesday, November 20, 2012 at 05:58 PM.

I’m thankful for spell-check; I wish it were dumb check but that’s a bridge too far.

I’m thankful for John Bogle and Zvi Bodie.

I’m thankful for Elizabeth Warren; the financial services industry loathes her while they exploit consumers.  The Consumer Financial Protection Board, if properly funded, will benefit Americans. To be fair and balanced (really), good riddance to Barney Frank. Frank, in concert with Senator Tom Harkin, parachuted language into the Dodd-Frank bill, allowing a particularly despicable annuity new life.

I’m thankful Humana sent health insurance premium rebates. I will be thankful if our daughter can find an individual health insurance policy, a chronic health condition and Texas politicians being what they are. I’m thankful my nephew can stay on his mother’s health insurance, although it forces my sister-in-law to keep a job she hates.

I’m thankful for Forrest Williams’ new CD and for all the girls and boys who make the noise up and down 30A.

I’m thankful for the Seaside Rep. Check out their Christmas shows.  I’m thankful I can watch the Tech game over breakfast with my son in California.

I’m especially thankful you’ve read this far and I’m thankful for Honey.
