    Is BRK/WEB going to scare politicians wo

    Iggy wonders aloud...."So, the question is, do
    you think that as time passes, there will be some
    pressure to brak up BRK? Is that good or bad news for us?
    Or am I just paranoid?" ..........The pols in
    Washington don't mind concentrations of power if nobody
    complains too loud...the Dept of Justice really didn't
    start leaning on Gates until some 20 odd state
    attorneys general started preparing suits sensing the
    possibility of a big score a 'la the tobacco
    settlement........some say a MSFT breakup would actually help a company
    grown soft...break it into "baby Bills"..get some of
    their old fire in the belly back...same thing could
    happen to us if the company gets too big and ponderous
    and Buffett dies...wouldn't be a bad thing IMO.......
