Gang, we're not going to mince words here- this has been the worst month of Warren Buffett's life. Anything that could have gone wrong did. The Sokol business, the Dilly Bar he dropped on his shirt before going into a big meeting, the Squawk Box redesign, the unwrapped Sees Candy Munger left on his dash in the hot sun. If all that wasn't enough, now comes word that in one fell swoop, his favorite show, the launchpad for his acting career, and his shot at a date with Susan Lucci are gone.
Because they don't care that the Oracle is in a very fragile state right now, executives at ABC have cancelled Buffett's beloved soap, All My Children, which he guest starred on several times in the hopes of transitioning careers. Now what's he supposed to do, huh? Show up to open casting calls? Take his clothes off for some director? Appear in a commercial for Valtrex? I think not. What does need to happen is that someone at ABC needs to fix this and fast. Until then, this will be watched on loop through a veil of tears.
