while there's no hard evidence that buffett was buying these particular bonds, he did wind up with some WTEL equity, which would seem to be pretty strong evidence that he'd bought those WCG 10%+ senior notes that were selling for 14ish before they hit the skids. it also wouldn't surprise me if he'd bought Q bonds as well; they were also cheap. there were probably others; i never looked at GX's debt.

Well it came out later that he was also buying Amazon junk bonds, and some other issues.

I was just making sure that he didn't find a railroad trading at $30/share with $100/share in cash in 2002 :-).
