I know I've posed this question before, but I must ask again – what is the fascination with this guy?
Every time the guy farts, there's a media frenzy, as if Uncle Warren is some kind of infallible genius. He made his fortune, yes, but take a good hard look at the performance of BRK.A over the past five years: a big, fat, 0% return! Whoop-dee-freakin'-doo!
Every time I hear about the Oracle of Omaha (or, if the reporter is particularly blinkered and misses the clever alliteration, the Sage of Omaha) or am told about the annual "Woodstock of Capitalism" (ha! ha ha! what a hilarious, droll metaphor!) where a bunch of blue-haired old ladies meander around a convention center, I want to puke into a bucket.
He's a really rich old man. Goody for him. Now STFU.
