This sort of occurred to me when I first read it:
Warren Buffett says Apple has been too secretive about the health problems facing CEO Steve Jobs ...
"If I have any serious illness, or something coming up of an important nature, an operation or anything like that, I think the thing to do is just tell the American, the Berkshire shareholders about it. I work for 'em. Some people might think I'm important to the company. Certainly Steve Jobs is important to Apple. So it's a material fact. Whether he is facing serious surgery or not is a material fact ..
It's all well and good to be a control/secrecy freak, but there's a time when your passion for keeping everything buttoned up tight could very well violate the rights of the company's freaking owners.
At least, Warren seems to think so.
