    When you read abut it, it does look silly, a $2 million lunch. But when you see it's for charity, doesn't seem so silly after all. Now what I'd like to know is how much of that $2.3M is actually going to charity and how much is being tied up in admin charges and other wasteful expenses. Salvation Army to date has the most impressive record of proportioning the expenditure of the donations they receive. The maximum bucks go to the people who need the help. My hat's off to the Salvation Army for their adherence to the purpose for which they were formed in the first place. Refreshing to find out that charity can really be good.

    Sounds like Buffett figured out how to give to charity with others money. What is the call now? Government entitlement.

    It's not so much the menu as the company you'll be with.

    I can't think of anyone that impressive to have lunch with.

    Anyone that does, has no need for money. I would rather take $2.3 million and give $10,000 each to 230 needy families.
