Lots of people call on Warren Buffett for support. Political candidates (Democrats mostly) want his support. Charitable institutions want his support. Human rights groups hope he'll use his wealth to support their causes.
That's is not surprising, given Buffett's reputation a very successful investor who has kept his common sense and who believes that the world can be made a better place.
But this particular call for support is, well, somewhat unusual.
In the new issue of Time Magazine, Senior Editor Belinda Luscombe, writes an open letter to Mr. Buffett, calling on his support on behalf of "the women of America" because "they need you. Badly."
The cause: reforming the 80-year-old "old tech" bra-sizing system that uses cup sizes between A and D.
The problem: "Every single day across this great nation of ours, women have to force themselves into cruelly lit cubicles with ill-closing curtains to try to find a bra that fits. But only a pitiful few do."
