PHOTO SHOWCASE: 55th annual Press Club Show

***

Warren Buffett and his secretary, Debbie Bosanek, took to the stage Saturday night at the annual Press Club Show to riff on their roles as news and headline makers.

Buffett, who has performed in several of the shows over the years, sang “I'm Only a Paperboy,” a takeoff on “It's Only a Paper Moon” that was tied to Berkshire Hathaway Inc.'s purchase last December of the Omaha World-Herald Co. The show's title was “Warren's Herald.”

Buffett dressed the part, wearing a newsboy cap and carrying a newspaper bag slung over his shoulder. He threw newspapers to the audience at Council Bluffs' Mid-America Center. Buffett has experience as a newspaper carrier: He held that job as a boy.

Bosanek, making her Press Club debut, offered a top 5 list of things she will buy when she gets into a lower tax bracket, spoofing her boss's portrayal of her as an example of middle-income Americans who pay higher income tax rates than some wealthy people.

One item on her list: “An extra scuttle of coal for those cold January days at the office.” The satirical stage show raises money for Omaha Press Club Foundation's journalism scholarships.
