Yesterday’s announcement that Warren Buffett, the oracle from Omaha, was buying the balance of the shares of Burlington Northern, the second largest rail carrier in the country, illustrated his philosophy of buying into an industry that he can understand. Investors in the stock of the holding company that he runs, Berkshire Hathaway, should be pleased to see Buffett make a big move with the mounds of cash at his disposal.

In a landmark jury trial, the City of San Antonio and 172 Texas cities won $20.6 million verdict against 11 of the largest online travel booking companies, including Expedia, Travelocity, Priceline & Orbitz.

I started writing for this site a long time ago. It was within the first few months of its inception as a matter of fact. I was invited to this site from an ad on Craigslist.
