The biggest story of the week is about David Sokol. If you do not know what I am referring to, check out the original story on Everyone feels the need to comment, and there have been many dumb articles on the topic, with clearly little if any research done. since I am not an expert on Berkshire Hathaway I have refrained on writing on the issue. To date I have only found one person who has done some real journalism on the topic. He wrote several articles on the topic, so I will just give a link to the website. Make sure to check out Ravi’s site, where there are many well-researched, and well-written articles on the topic.

Below is the rest of the link-fest.
