Bravo! Macalope, bravo! Owning up to a mistake is the sign of a mature, well balanced, man...uh, antelope? No, Mac? Wait, I got it, mythical creature.

We all make mistakes! However, the key is to admit them and learn from them. And it is clear you have!! Always enjoy your posts! (And, I was a bit surprised that Jim Cramer was so off base. Happy to hear he was not!)

Hang in there Lope! I think there is a large bale of alfalfa just waiting for you since you fessed up.

Cramer is my brother's idol. He's (my brother) quite savvy when it comes to the Market. He's also a happy Apple user.

"Pundits and investors have gone around the bend, across the median, through the guardrail of sanity and into Dumbass Gulch over Apple’s supposed woes."

Classic! Love your work!

Kudos. Now if 90+% of tech bloggers, the NYT, WSJ, Forbes, and on and on would see what you wrote for today's column, that it wasn't fatal, and makes you more trustworthy ,then some good can come of this!

It is National Run-On Sentence Day today, isn't it? The above is my entry. It isn't much but I'm still tired from National Procrastination Day...

I hope that after a suitable period of ostracism the herd lets you return.

Well confessed, sir.

<his lithsome and wordly readers >

Well, I suppose I'd rather be lithsome than loathsome, even though it does make me sound a bit, well, rock-like. On the whole, I would much rather have been called lithesome, however inaccurate that description might actually be!

...and I thought the Macalope was being sarcastic in his portrayal of Cramer's sarcasm as genuine.
