Clint Hill on "John-John"'s iconic salute: "He threw his shoulders back, and he saluted his father...I don't think there was a dry eye"

With Friday representing the precise 50 year anniversary of the assassination of then-President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, this evening at 9 Piers Morgan speaks with a man who'll forever be associated with one of the most fatal dates in American history.

Secret service agent Clint Hill was riding in the car behind JFK's vehicle as part of the infamous Dallas, Texas motorcade, and upon hearing the gunshots, he instinctively rushed forward, jumping on the back of the president's vehicle in an attempt to offer protection.

Sadly, the gunshots that pierced Kennedy's head proved fatal, and the president was pronounced dead shortly thereafter. Three days later, following a funeral mass in Washington DC, the nation was presented with one of the most iconic images in American history, as the president's son – "John-John" – raised his three-year-old hand to his temple, and upon his mother's urging, saluted his father's casket: FULL POST

Warren Buffett empties his wallet

Tonight, Piers Morgan asks the second richest man in the world what he carries in his wallet and, as we see, Warren Buffett casually reaches into his back pocket and pulls out a 20-year-old bill-fold.

“Here's my American Express card from 1964,” he says proudly.

Baffled by the fact that he still has the original, green AmEx, Morgan follows up:

"That's the one you've have the whole time?"

Buffett's parenting style

Tonight, on "Piers Morgan Live," Piers Morgan welcomes perhaps the most financially savvy panel he’s ever assembled on his set: billionaire businessman Warren Buffett, his son Howard G., and grandson Howard W., to talk fortunes and Buffett family values. As the most successful investor of the 20th century, the senior Buffett had assembled a vast fortune by the time his first son was born in 1954, but never strayed from the lessons learned through his own modest, Midwestern upbringing of self-reliance and frugality.

Citing an example of perhaps a father-son deal gone wrong, Howard G. tells Morgan of a rather odd deal he struck with dad Warren over rent on some land the eldest son wanted to farm. “Actually that was 400 acres that (my son) farms now and the deal was that the rent amount would be based on my weight,” says Howard G.

“Warren what were you thinking?” asks Morgan, continuing, “so, it was literally paid that if you put on weight, the rent went up?”

“Yeah, and I started feeding him candy and pie and all this” notes Warren with a chuckle. “This was not a brilliant moment in parenting.”

None of three Buffett children ever completed college, a fact that doesn’t bother Warren in the least. “I didn't want to go to college myself. My dad talked me into it,” says Warren, who counts the prestigious Wharton School and Columbia Business School among his alma maters. “I think my kids got a wonderful education in public school. They went to the same school that their grandfather did, their mother. ... the inner city school that's been between 20 and 35 percent black for 75 years. They saw the real world and they saw what America is all about, and I think it was a great education,” says Warren, echoing the core values he’s lived his life by despite his immense fortune.

Morgans asks the patricarch how his son and grandson dealt with being born into a family with such tremendous wealth, Warren responds, “They never felt that it was going to be passed on to create some dynasty or something. I always felt that we would live wonderfully, and then the rest will go back to society, and that's been the plan since I was in my 20s.” Warren plans to give the bulk of his fortune to charity.

Warren Buffett on cell phones, email, and material goods

Coming up tonight at 9, Piers Morgan opens his New York studio for a very special edition of his primetime program, one that he aptly calls "Three Generations of Buffett."

With business tycoon Warren Buffett sitting by his son, Howard Graham Buffett, and his grandson Howard Warren Buffett, talk turns to technology, and the "Piers Morgan Live" host encourages the Buffett patriarch to produce his cell phone.

"This is the one Alexander Graham Bell gave me," jokes Buffett, as he reveals a Nokia flip phone, a relic as compared to today's smart phones. "I don't throw anything away until I've had it 20 or 25 years."

Switching from mobile to mail, Morgan asks his guest about the land of InBoxes and Spam. FULL POST

Warren Buffett on Kathleen Sebelius' role in the Obamacare website glitches

In a very special edition of his primetime program, on Tuesday, Piers Morgan welcomed three generations of Buffett's, welcoming family patriarch Warren Buffett, his son Howard Graham Buffett, and his grandson Howard Warren Buffett for an hour-long interview that touched upon everything from business and technology, to music, charity, and the American way.

On the heels of recent glitches surrounding the Obamacare website, Morgan asked Buffett for his thoughts on Kathleen Sebelius’ role as the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

“I like Kathleen, I feel sorry for her in the position she’s in,” Buffett began. “Obviously it’s a huge screw up, but it’ll get worked out.”

As the live interview continued, Buffett shared his personal business philosophy on handling employees under duress, in terms of choosing to fire an individual versus sticking through rocky times: FULL POST
