Editorial: Fawning over rock-star rich guy

The unnamed Courier editor embarrasses himself with today's drooling sycophancy over a stock boilerplate speech by megarich gambler Warren Buffett, battering the reader with a barrage of cliche non-thoughts.

There was a time in this country when we admired people for what the produce. Buffett's clearly not the worst of his ilk, but his riches are won entirely by betting on the production of others. His comments were directed exclusively at others in his non-industry, they're not of any use to those of us who actually work for a living.

I missed the fawning (anonymous) Courier editorial when Buffet was going around telling anyone who could listen that his $40,000/yr secretary pays over 20% of her income in federal taxes and his own were 16%, and Americans needed to tax the rich more.
