    Hey Andrew,

    So your reason for leaving the stock was because you felt Warren’s oversight of Berkshire was waning? I too would foresee a massive sell-off the moment he declares retirements or when he announces to the world (or his shareholders) that the last of his responsibilities has been handed off. When exactly did you sell the last of it? Was is Class A or B stock (silly curiosity)? Do you still carry it in that Teacher’s portfolio you manage will some of your old friends?
