    I don't know...........[OT]

    .........what Obuchi and Clinton said to each
    other yesterday but......on Saturday the Prime Minister
    gave an interview with the Washington Post. In the
    interview he said that he felt that the Jananese Govt. had
    done about all it could do to fix it's economy. Now
    get a load of this.....he said that the only "remedy"
    left would be for Japan to build a "wartime
    economy"........I didn't like the sound of that........

    • Two points:
      1. If you are bothered by
      Japan's hint of a "wartime economy", imagine how South
      Korea must be quaking in their boots.
      2. As I
      understand it, our two greatest risks in Super Cat are
      California earthquakes and South Florida hurricanes. Is this
      current hurricane going to put us at risk? On the whole,
      if it drives the BRK price down right now as we look
      at the merger, that could be a good thing,
      Does WEB have control over the weather, too?!!!
