With Buffettstock set to be less of a lovefest than usual today, DealBook assembles questions readers would ask the Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) chief, given the chance - and (as the event likely will) they focus heavily on the Sokol/Lubrizol (LZ) affair after this week's internal report on the matter.

    Sad that the avuncular Warren Buffet couldn't fade into the sunset before allowing his reputation to be tarnished by a sleazy former heir apparent. Makes you wonder about the rest of his team.

    I have grown a bit sick of Bufffett and this is coming from someone who owned Berkshire stock for over 10 years. I think he has become a bit too self righteous lately. Let us not forget he is far from the common man. He is the son of a member of Congress who attended Penn and graduated from Columbia B-School. I am sure we would view him differently if he lived in a 5K square foot penthouse in Manhattan than a 5K square foot home in Omaha. He was born into privilege and has known it his whole life. He has very little in common with the average person and if the banks do not get bailed out in 2008, his portfolio takes a massive hit.
