Apologies to the board and to Legg Mason Value Trust. I posted a couple of paragraphs from an article in today's Barron's and, as I learned in graduate school, referenced the author of the quote. Let me hasten to add that I am not the portfolio manager in question, though I agree with his comments, which is why I posted them. I manage a lot less money than they do, namely just my own! I thought it was perfectly clear that the quote in question was just that, a quote, (it is enclosed in quote marks after all) but I see looking back that it is ambiguous. The two reasons not to own BRK at the top are my opinion. There, I hope that clears up any confusion.
