    Nobody lives forever (except Fidel Castro maybe),so Buffett's departure in the not-too-distant future is a foregone conclusion. That the stock should drop on this news just shows how one can take advantage of opportunities in the market. Prices reacting to short-term news can provide opportunities to those interested in a longer-term horizon.
