Warren Buffett endorses Hillary

wants higher taxes.

Buffett, having shoveled in filthy lucre with both hands for most of his 70 odd years, feels the grim reaper getting closer and wants to store up virtue in heaven by doing more for the poor. But, being a shrewd investor, he wants to do more for them the only sensible way, with your money. In other words, higher taxes. On you. And me. We can spare the money, unless we are blinded by our greed and selfishness and don't care about the common good.

Warren has looked into matters and has decided that he can pony up more money for the tax collector without feeling the pinch. And so can you, or else.

You gotta watch out for rich guys who are Democrats. Makes you wonder what sort of scam they ran to get it. OT, how's the Yiddish Policemen's Union coming?

Dick: Haven't had time to crack the book.

I really enjoyed TYPU, as I did his first and second novels, Mysteries of Pittsburgh and Wonder Boys. Am now reading the one for which he won the Pullet Surprise: the Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay. It seems very different from the others.

I tried Kavalier and Clay a long time ago and didn't care for it. I guess that's why I've been putting off reading YPU.

I just finished K&C. It dragged in places but I admit I enjoyed it. I assure you, however, that YPU is very different. My wife didn't like it, but she has never read any crime fiction, while you have read some of the Reacher series so you will be better prepared.

Dick: Had to give up YPU. The author is too much of a wise guy.
