    Hi Ms. Buffett, I believe what your doing is very commendable and feel I understand the life you were raised with. We have a lot in common, although, I don't want to write about it on the internet. I work very hard taking care of my children with special needs and sometimes wonder if I'm best for them. It is not easy.

    How wonderful–truly the secret to happiness and fufillment is to give. I don't have much ,but I always find something I can clothe someone with or feed people-no matter how hard my times have been -I always am keenly aware that I have it better than a majority of the world-because we have it good here even when its bad. God Bless this woman–more people with money should do it–not because I think they don't deserve to have so much-but that they are missing out on a vital part of life that is so rewarding-and it is to give.

    Sen Nelson warns that there is now a doomsday scenerio where the oil casing under the drill head is leaking oil into the strata producing a background leakage that presumably will be impossible to stop. My question is whether this background leakage is normal or should I be worried. I feel like I am falling down into the rabbit hole and everything is getting stranger and stranger. Someone should own this new issue and tell us if this is truly a doomsday scenerio realized.
