Buffet's worth, what, $5 billion? And what has his social contribution been? I'm no tobacco-basher, but he did say once that the beauty of tobacco investments is that cigarettes cost pennies to make, sell for dollars, have great brand loyalty, and are addictive. Inspiring. He's a good friend of Katharine Graham's, and a Malthusian too, I think.
