Thanks Cardboard, I coulden't immediately find or remember the situation. Here is the original Berkshire news announcement from the Berkshire website.
”In the race of excellence … there is no finish line.”

Yeah - he was already pissed at that point because they did a horrible deal for DiGiorno frozen pizza with Nestle.  It was hasty, fully taxed, etc..  That's when he made the TV rounds telling everyone he felt "poorer."

Thanks Cardboard! It has definitely been rare, so must imply a relatively strong disagreement, imo.

Berkshire now sells the Berkshires.

I can't find anything on how many agents, etc. these guys add.

I'm guessing that Kirby, White and crew are like the Blumkins of RE.

I could see them making a run at RLGY if their management looks for a buyer. Shares look somewhat cheap and they own some of the best known franchises, although I am not sure how much the franchise name actually counts.

General news:

This is the 16,001st post in the Berkshire forum - since February 1st 2009. Fairfax is still ahead, with almost 500 more posts! I think the next investment idea to close the door among those on the tribune is SHLD [with almost 9,200 posts] - I suppose it's fair to say, that a majority of them are not created out of attraction!
