USA Today interview with Buffett

June 18th, 2008

The Wednesday edition of USA Today has an interview with Buffett: “Buffett on Buffett: ‘I Made People Smile'”. Here are a couple of the question and answers:

A: As long as I can remember the words and not go flat, I will still sing. I look at Harry Belafonte and (Frank) Sinatra in the late ages, and there is a magic on that stage that very few people get to experience. I’m going to enjoy every day.

Q: What is it like having teenagers at 61?

A: I don’t feel like I’m 61, the way I perceived 61 when my parents were 61. I think I’m in better shape and I’m not as grown up as they were, so that helps. The kids are like people now.
