The Buffett "cult"?

Just a quick link for today, then I'm out of here.

It seems that there is a certain Richard Davenport-Hines who takes a dim view of the Americans who treat Warren Buffett as an oracle.

His squinting isn't, by the way, directed at Buffett himself. Not particularly, he says that Buffett "spends his days in a repetitive routine which most people would find mortifyingly banal," but he also finds that Buffett has his good points -- praising Buffett's "accurate warnings in 1999 about the false dot-com boom," and so forth.

It is just the cultists to whom he objects. Make of it all what you will.

I link, you decide.
