The big Buffett

Warren Buffett’s plans to give most of his fortune to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is just amazing.

It hasn’t come up in all the coverage, but it’s looking like the foundation will have at least a $100 billion endowment. It already has $29 billion. Bill Gates has pledged his remaining $50 billion or so, and now his pal Buffett’s adding $31 billion to the pot.

You can’t buy friends like that.
