More than 40,000 people are expected Saturday at the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting, which marks Warren Buffett's 50th year of running his company like a locomotive. The 200,000-square-foot exhibit hall at the CenturyLink Center will be packed with kiosks touting products and services from Berkshire-owned companies, from commemorative-edition ketchup bottles to manufactured homes.
But you don't have to go to Omaha, Neb., to see what Berkshire does. As your day planner shows, Buffett's stuff is already a big part of your life. It's kind of creepy.
