    Rumor re Yahoo's Threads

    it would be a mistake to shut this board down.
    The paradox of BRK is: the higher it goes, the less I
    can talk about it. This board is my outlet. If a
    friend asks what stocks I hold I say I have a "few
    shares" of BRK.and let it go at that. People outside the
    BRK community just don't understand. When you buy
    your first share it becomes a life-changing event. If
    this board goes down, and the new boards are no good,
    then I'll take the train into Union Station and meet
    you and Cowboy for lunch.

      vote for Motley Fool.

        are tm your initials? If you are providing notice of
        your tradename, register your tradename through the
        trademark office and you can change the (TM) symbol to (R)
        and prevent others from using a confusingly similar

    • Well said. Let me know when you're inside the
      beltway, we'll have a BRK east reunion (home of

      Iggy, sorry about the last post, I meant to comment on
      your MO comments, then began to respond to spyderweb(I
      didn't realize others had already discussed GDP growth).
      As to MO, don't forget Kraft/General Foods,
      Maxwellhouse,etc.. I don't have any MO, but it had a nice bounce
      yesterday. They could always pull a TCI multi-share deal or
      spinoff. Who knows what the guys in Richmond have in

    • Bobo.

      Good post. I intend to keep using
