Wish they would include the likes of Tom Russo or Chris Davis on the panel. They are heavily vested in the longer term of Berkshire. They share my interest in understanding the real risks.

I and several others talked about this last year - instead of having Wall Street equity analysts, why not a panel of value oriented hedge fund managers? I think Pabrai, Tilson, or even someone like Ackman would be happy to sit on a panel. I don't why this hasn't happened yet as I think it's a win win for everyone (except the equity analysts!). I think I'm going to write Buffett a letter suggesting this format.

You could tweet at Pabrai and the other about it.

Just don't ever "@" Mr. Pabrai, if you want to be able to read his tweets going forwards. Just saying ; - )

OK guys, way to spoil it for the rest of us.  It's like watching the pope from St. Peter's square vs on TV - not quite the same.  The trip ain't exactly cheap, but it's cheaper than just about other annual meeting you might go to if you're willing to book a discount airline and hotel 15 minutes away from downtown.
