Question Solved

A couple months ago Chris was in Omaha for the stockholders meeting of Warren Buffet's company Berkshire Hathway. Bill Gates is on the board and he was in attendance. I was most interested in hearing about Mr. Gates rather than the boring stockholders meeting. Chris said that Bill only left the room when all the lights were off between presentations. He also never stood up when he was introduced. That led to pondering on our part regarding his everyday life. Does the world's richest man have bodyguards? What about bulletproof limos? Is he stalked by paparazzi? Does he drive himself to work?
Thankfully, the last question was answered today as a friend of a friend of Cherie's passed along this photo. It appears that Bill Gates does in fact drive himself to work. It actually looks like he's in the middle of work as he's obviously reading from the papers propped up on the steering wheel. Perhaps he should make use of a driver after all.
