    Acquisitions for Berkshire

    Yes, Mars is probably worth 20 billion, thats why Warren may like it, because it is his league(elephant). Why wouldn't Mars want to sell, pocket 20 billion and retain a 10 or 15% equity stake. That would be great, I'd eat even more choclate than I do now. Personally, I have seen written in several reports that Buffett is attracted to the utility business. I think a outfit like Kinder Morgan(KMI) or Williams(WMB) would be up his alley.
