Weekly Link Round-up for October 1, 2010

This week on @blueleaf, we included an article about a certain Warren Buffet quote. We know, we know, it’s cliche. But the “castles and moats” metaphor seems to be one that is repeated in plenty personal finance articles today, and, though a bit fantastical, perfectly good advice for any young investor (and old).
