A Quick Minute Look
Jim Cramer, the stock guru, is famous for having had to sleep in his car at one point in his life. He knows a little of what it is like to come up the hard way. After having listened to his show for years (I do have one bad habit -stock investing - keeps me away from the racetrack) he is someone who has impressed me as a person who is sympathetic to the underdog. So I wrote the following redacted email to him! Why not! Sometimes long shots do come in:
My daughter has suffered from kidney disease since she was 18, she is 41 now. She was on dialysis for some months before she got a transplant. It led me to help head-up a group that got a bill through the Colorado statehouse.
But my concern about the kidney dialysis field of medicine came back with the announcement of this book. It was further enhanced when a friend sent me this article. I was so upset, I called for a Walk this May 6th. Mr. Munger and Mr. Buffett aren't getting younger so I felt some urgency!
Why am I writing to you? I've always considered you an honest, kind person who calls it the way he sees it! Maybe there is a chance you could talk Mr. Munger and Mr. Buffett into breaking up DaVita? It sounds like they could do it with pocket change. I've already written Becky Quick - and I'm encouraging others to.
