On this edition of Houston Matters, we turn to you with a simple question: What are you thankful for? We welcome your examples of those things in your life and times here in Greater Houston for which you're most appreciative. It could be family of friends. It could be something about Houston itself — our culture, our food, our air-conditioned baseball. Area comedian Billy Washington and clinical social worker Lynn Goode join us to discuss some of what they're thankful for about life in Houston today.

Also this hour: A special pre-Thanksgiving edition of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. On today’s non-expert panel: Native Texan columnist and Houston Chronicle editorial writer Joe Holley, Russ Capper, the founder and co-host of the Business Makers Radio Show and The Energy Makers Show, and Marcus Davis, owner of The Breakfast Klub restaurant and host of Sunday Morning Live on Majic 102.1. They discuss a lawsuit over voter approval to change term limit rules for city officials, conversations on area campuses about implementing campus carry policies and whether Houston’s City Council might consider a ban on texting while driving before the end of the year.

Plus: Much has been written over the years about British statesman and Prime Minister Winston Churchill. He was one of the dominant figures of the 20th century. But a new book co-written by his great-grandson Jonathan Sandys (who lives here in Houston) covers some largely unexplored territory, examining Churchill’s religious beliefs. Houston Matters producer Edel Howlin talks with Sandys about the book, and about the author’s famous great-grandfather.
