Despite what many people seem to believe, Warren Buffett did not spring fully formed from the mind of Zeus. He, too, was born of woman and today the old guy celebrates his 81st birthday.
I go way back with Warren. Here's me wishing him happy birthday on his 76th birthday. And on his 77th. I was a lot meaner back then.
But the prize for Buffett birthday messages today goes to Foster Kamer at the New York Observer, who has written up his hilarious and ill-fated attempt to interview Buffett at the party for HBO's "Too Big To Fail."
