Scott’s scoop has been confirmed!  JB will be at Pine Knob Aug 13, according to the Freep this morning.  Tix on sale next Sat.

And Scott’s follow-up, at 9:56:04:

Yes, it is all over now (buffett news etc).  You heard it hear first!!

Second update: Here’s the blurb from the Detroit Free Press, “Names & Faces” article, “Weekend Life” section, page 6C:
