Halloween and Christmas encroach upon Thanksgiving like two overgrown bullies harassing an innocent child. While still recovering from the sugar-soaked fun of Halloween, we’re besieged by the holly-jolliness of Christmas marketing.

In all those years, school was never cancelled because of snow.

A few years back, I wrote a column called “How Much are You Worth?” I went back and read it this last week. It still speaks to me, especially in this month of November.
