What Are We Thankful For?

For those who have not heard, tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day.  One tradition at the Matthews household is that everyone at the dinner table must give a reason to be thankful before getting an turkey.  So, I thought I'd bring that tradition to TheLostOgle.  I'll start:

Clark Matthews:  I am thankful , of course, for my loving wife and one year old son...but also, having Tom Coburn and Jim Inhofe to provide me with material for articles.

Patrick Nelson is thankful amendments have been made to the Constitution of Oklahoma.

Tony Hanadarko says he is thankful for "his pet turtle", but what he really gives thanks for is that he gets to walk on the same Earth as David Beckham.

Now, wasn't that nice.  As successful as this exercise was, I thought I'd extend it to some of Oklahoma's more famous citizens.  After the jump you will find out how some of your favorite Oklahomans answered this question:

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

Aubrey McClendon:  My money.

Mayor Mick Cornett:  Aubrey McClendon's money.

Toby Keith:  That people have forgotten about this picture...
