What do we know about Warren Buffett?

I am continually reminded in class how many college students know next to nothing about arguably the world's most famous investor. So when the WSJ's Wallet blog reported a few items on his personal finances, I jumped at the opportunity to send readers in that direction:

The Wallet:
"...what are Buffett’s personal finances like? Our esteemed colleagues at Deal Journal have been tirelessly reporting on his deal-making psyche, so we thought we would round up some nuggets about his everyday spending.

-His net worth is around $62 billion (with a “B”), but he takes home a mere $100,000 as his annual salary as head of Berkshire Hathaway.
-He still lives in the Nebraska home he bought four decades ago for $31,500."
There are several other tidbits there as well, including the observation that his credit score is lower than you would thing due to identity theft.
