Jon Stewart is great, but don’t forget to recognize the courage Jim Cramer had to summon to knowingly walk into a super-charged buzz-saw.

You can't have a conversation with yourself.  And if we can steer toward a better place thanks in part to conversations like this, I want us to have more of them.  So I want to thank Jim Cramer for participating, and since your microphone is louder than mine, I want you to do it too.

Another writes:

To a certain extent, I resent the autonomous acceptance of Cramer as a redemptive figure for merely acknowledging the validity of Stewart's arguments, but I will admit that he seemed genuinely humbled, and perhaps even impelled to make up for past transgressions.
