CBS offered a couple of reviews of the year past. Jerry Bowen celebrated "lives lived well"--notable obituaries from 2006: James Brown, Don Knotts, Coretta Scott King, Dana Reeves, Byron Nelson, Red Auerbach, Buck O'Neill, Johnny Apple, Frank Stanton, Ed Bradley, Lloyd Bentsen, Ann Richards, Jeane Kirkpatrick…and Gerald Ford.
Bianca Solorzano surveyed "Goldilocks" economic conditions, "not too hot, not too cold." She touched on the contracting housing market, receding fears of inflation, the bullish stock market. And she could not resist an unacknowledged hat-tip to Time magazine in identifying resilient consumer spending as the key to underlying continued growth: "2006 was the year of, well, You…You, the consumer, drove the economy."
