Warren Buffett's Favorite CIO Might Be The Greatest Investment Writer Right Now Because He Opens All Of His Monthly Letters Like This

"Hiroo Onoda died on January 16, 2014 at the age of 91. He had been the last surviving guerilla holdout of the Japanese army, remaining on a Philippine island for approaching 30 years after the end of World War II. Most of his comrades deserted him within a few years of the war’s end, but Onoda persisted in serving a divine emperor until his former commanding officer flew to the Philippines with orders that Onoda give up. He wrote later, “When finally I did see those thousands of cars in Tokyo, moving along the streets and the elevated expressways without a sign of war anywhere, I cursed myself.

- John Gilbert, CIO, Gr-Neam.
