The Best of Kass

This year's version of my tribute to Jim has more meaning to me than the others -- as I recently and successfully conquered cancer. It is life experiences of this type that makes one even more thankful.

As I mention annually, a few paragraphs could not possibly communicate the warm feelings I have about many of my acquired relationships -- with subscribers, with contributors, with editors, with the management of TheStreet and, of course, with Jim, who lies at the middle of it all.

Several years ago, I initiated something different in order to express my sincere thanks and to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season in my own special way. This morning, as I now do on an annual basis, I offer you the following (updated) parody of Dr. Seuss's McElligot's Pool ( Wikipedia link) ( Amazon link)

This is my holiday present to all of you, but it's especially in honor of someone who has had another remarkable encore performance in 2012, Jim "El Capitan" Cramer.

This year we saw Cramerica reach not only millions more television viewers, but many universities as well. Jim hit it out of the park when he followed up his past MVP season. His books all represent a unique body of work, as well: Jim Cramer's Getting Back to Even, Jim Cramer's Stay Mad for Life: Get Rich, Stay Rich (Make Your Kids Even Richer), Jim Cramer's Mad Money: Watch TV, Get Rich, Jim Cramer's Real Money: Sane Investing in an Insane World, Confessions of a Street Addict and You Got Screwed! Why Wall Street Tanked and How You Can Prosper.

Jim is the lifeblood and at the epicenter of TheStreet and its sister sites, Real Money and Real Money Pro.

Over the past few years, the man who doesn't want to make friends but does want to make you money, has introduced the words "skidaddy" and "boo-yah" and made them part of the investment world's vernacular. He has graced the cover of national magazines and has become an iconic figure. As such, he stands out, night after night, with nonstop enthusiasm and hard work, giving his best shot in dispelling advice in a reasoned and well-researched manner -- both absolutely and relative to others in the media.
