Jimmy Buffett was the answer to one of the ‘Test Pilot’ questions in the October issue of AOPA Pilot magazine, the magazine of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association. Here was the question and answer:

Question 7. From reader Charles Baumann: Less than 10 authors have ever had their books appear on The New York Times bestseller lists for both fiction and nonfiction. Which of these authors is well known as a pilot?

Answer – Jimmy Buffett for his novels, Where is Joe Merchant? (1992) and A Salty Piece of Land (2004). His book A Pirate Looks at Fifty made the nonfiction list in 1998.

Buffett Gets Mention On CNBC

Thursday morning on CNBC, former US congressman Dick Armey mentioned Jimmy Buffett. A BuffettWorld visitor details what was said:

Did you see Dick Armey on CNBC this am? He noted that we are listening to the
wrong Buffett and we should be listening to Jimmy Buffett, not Warren Buffett.
Then he went on to explain why based on a couple lines from Jimmy’s songs. The
CNBC gang asked who gave him the line and verbally assumed he was not a
Parrothead, to which he enthusiastically replied that he was and he knew every
single song line.

(hat tip to Erik for passing this along)
