Business Ventures[edit]

Perhaps the bar and restaurant franchising info currently in the music section should be moved to this section.

Why no mention of the Margaritaville that existed in Gulf Shores, Alabama in the early 1980s? Either this location, or possibly one in Key West, was the first real-life Margaritaville. It was not part of the franchise/licensing setup under which the current properties operate. 68.17.108.6 (talk) 15:33, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

the article currently states buffet makes $100 million/year, and has a net worth of $400 million. does this make sense? Fp cassini (talk) 05:31, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

add yachts[edit]

a section should be added ab buffett's yachts , used to be sailing yacht Euphoria 48 ft cheoy lee clipper and presently power yacht continental drifter III 126 ft , he is ab st barts or sag harbor with these reel burga in 69.121.221.97 (talk) 21:30, 22 July 2011 (UTC)

I think we also need sections on what kind of shoes he wears, what kind of shampoo he uses, and his thoughts on gay marriage. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.69.204.131 (talk) 18:57, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

In addition to Continental Drifter, Mr. Buffett has a large sport fishing boat called "Last Mango".MacInCT (talk) 19:18, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

When i read a Wkpdia article on a singer, i expect to see info on what brand of chips he typically eats when on his yacht. A singer can`t possibly sail on margaritas alone. Fp cassini (talk) 05:28, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

Buffett's disdain for "Parrot Heads?"[edit]

I read or heard that Buffett is quoted as saying parrot heads should get a life, or something statement kind of negative about his Followers. Is that accurate? I can not find anything on the internet. I think it is from the 1990-s. I read today that he did not show up at his followers in key west at the big meeting they have down in the keys and it makes me think of what i read. Any iders?

Wretched sentence[edit]

   I don't have time to figure out whether the following sentence from the "Business ventures" section --

Despite Buffett's partnership with the Dolphins, Buffett is a diehard New Orleans Saints fan, having attended the team's first game at Tulane Stadium in 1967 and later had Saints head coach Sean Payton served as an honorary member of the Coral Reefer Band at a concert in New Orleans on April 1, 2012, in protest of Payton's suspension by the NFL as a result of the Saints' bounty scandal.

-- is grammatical or not. I'm sure that it's too long and would profit from being broken into two sentences, probably most efficiently by someone who cares about the subject matter.

Kozlowski[edit]

I removed the sentence

Kozlowski was later convicted in New York state court and sentenced to prison for his role in various improprieties during his time as Tyco's CEO.

from ‎Controversy. As it stood it was just either cheap-shot sneer at a living person (Buffett), or a non-sequitur bcz it provides no info about the topic of either the article or the section. I do not assert that it can have no place in the article. I do not insist that it not appear in the article, but it must not without additional information that states, rather than insinuating, how it is relevant to controversy about Buffet. I.e., at a minimum, who has claimed Kozlowski's troubles or offenses are part of a controversy about JB, do they defend that claim, and if they don't, what do he or his defenders claim motivates the arguably indefensible critics/insinuators?
