Warren Buffett, on his birthday, gives kids $600M

"Warren Buffett is celebrating his 82nd birthday by giving each of his three children a big present: about $600 million worth of his company's stock for their charitable foundations."

Warren Buffett, on his birthday, gives kids $600M - Bottom Line

With one million $, I already save thousands of lives in third world countries. With 600 million, I would save a continent !

That was nice of him. I'm afraid I'm just too selfish, though. I think I'll just stick with having Rod Stewart play at my birthday party.

Charlie Munger, on the high side of 88, is probably wondering when that whippersnapper is going to grow up and apply himself...
