What do you give to a guy who has tens of billions of dollars and loves his job so much that he says he does cartwheels on the way to work?

Answer: The Presidential Medal of Freedom. It’s the highest government honor that can be bestowed on a civilian.

Nebraska’s best-known citizen worldwide, business wizard and world class philanthropist Warren Buffett, received that distinction Tuesday at a White House ceremony. President Barack Obama had a lot of good things to say about the man referred to as “The Oracle of Omaha,” and Buffett was his usual self. "It was thrilling for me,” Buffett said. “It's once in a lifetime and not only a lot of fun for me, I got to meet some terrific people.”
Albert Einstein called compound interest "the greatest mathematical discovery of all time".
