business news in context, analysis with attitude

I've got some business travel that is going to keep me from doing a regular MNB today and Monday, but this morning I'd like to offer something a little different.  September began with the passing of Jimmy Buffett after a four-year battle with skin cancer, and it has been extraordinary to me how many stories - with a plethora of business and life lessons - have appeared.  MNB readers know what a big Buffett fan I am, and so I thought I would end September with an all-Jimmy Buffett edition of MNB, featuring some of the stories and lessons I've tracked.  (Won't be much in the way of commentary here - I think most of these lessons speak for themselves.)

I'll be back Tuesday.  In the meantime, Fins Up!
