Berkshire Hathaway's annual meeting

Two reasons for this entry:
1. I love to follow Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway's annual meetings.
2. The WSj is having a 10 day free online trial. - Reporters' Notebook: Wisteria Lane, Omaha:
"The annual shareholder gathering at Berkshire Hathaway's headquarters in Omaha on Saturday, often called 'Woodstock for Capitalists,' included bling, a merger deal and appearances by the 'Desperate Housewives' cast.Here are dispatches from the meeting."
For another look at it, here is the intro from the Houston Chronicle:
"Billionaire Warren Buffett greeted thousands of his faithful followers Saturday at the Berkshire Hathaway Inc. annual meeting, likely to face questions on everything from his successor to his company's latest acquisition.

Company officials predicted a record crowd of more than 20,000 people...University of Kansas junior Luiza Loureiro got in line for the meeting at 1:30 a.m. and said two or three other people were already there....[she] said she came so early because she wanted a chance to ask Buffett about Latin American investments and her finance professor offers extra credit to students who ask a question during the meeting."
