I have been an investor in Berkshire since Nov 1992.I have attended all meetings from 1993 on with the exception of 3 or 4 years. I have followed him or years, but was always given bad advice about him. I went to the first meeting for me in 1993, and thought that he was a genius and so was grumpy old Munger. Remember ,I said thought. Now I know for sure, and there is no doubt. He is human and has made mistakes, but in the long run, there is no one who compares. I don't buy into all that he says, but believe it or not , he is just correct too damn many times. Somewhat uncanny.
