$$$ Warren Buffett said buying a home was the third-best investment he ever made, after the rings he bought for his first wife, Susan Thompson, and, after her death, his second wife, Astrid Menks. “For the $31,500 I paid for our house, my family and I gained 52 years of terrific memories with more to come,” Buffett wrote to shareholders of his Berkshire Hathaway. [Bloomberg]

$$$ “Thus, the lingering question in our mind is why Citi signed off on its 2007 10-K as having effective controls in light of such problems,” said Mike Mayo. “This information is still relevant today because it reflects on the magnitude of the risk shortfalls and what we feel is the higher-than-perceived task of turning them around.” Citi spokeswoman Shannon Bell said the bank has no comment on Mayo’s report, but implied that his accusations were incorrect in discussing the company’s accounting procedures.

Explain to me why you’re making all of these rash dictatorial decisions without conferring with your star. I just don’t know what I did to piss everyone off so much. Other than like, roll in with gold and rock star presence, hit every mark and deliver like numbers.” [ML]

    We can now announce Mr. Charles Sheen as our newest hire here at Fox Business Channel. We look forward to adding his exciting and unusual point of view to our on-air lineup. And we think we have what he’s looking for in the female coworker department.

    Thank God for Charlie. It’s been a slow day otherwise. No vampires or werewolves suing their banks, UBS hasn’t done anything that sucks, no underage tramps posting proof of their sluttery…
