Warren Buffett Has Too Much Fun

Just read this article in the NY Times about Warren Buffett at the Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders Meeting.

A snippet:
And what’s not to worship? Berkshire shareholders gained $16.9 billion in net worth last year alone, an 18.4 percent increase in per share book value. Even more fun, the guy in charge, despite being the second-wealthiest man in the world, is a prize ham who loves to play his ukulele, show a video of himself “winning” a rigged one-on-one game against LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers, and then kick off the shareholder meeting by sending the singer Jimmy Buffett onstage to pretend he is a distant cousin who believes “that blood is thicker than water” and therefore he — the Margaritaville Man — should be Mr. Buffett’s successor. .......

He also played in "Who wants to be a Jillionaire" with Regis Philbin and left the game in disgust when the prize was only a billion.

Everyone's concerned about his replacement when he checks out. Apparently managing 100 billion dollars worth of assets is tough to do.
Resist much. Obey Little. . . . Ed Abbey
