I've got to say I disagree with belittling the gesture Mackey has made, as his commitment to the company.

CEO's that have very significant shares in a company, usually got those shares because they took big risks with a startup at a time when very little compensation for their work was guaranteed.

No matter how many shares or how much wealth someone has, there is always a tendency to get more. Greed plays a part, and also the desire to make sure you are getting a fair deal. That is why you have multi-millionaires like Martha Stewart losing her reputation, millions in her own company stock, and going to prison, to save a few tens of thousands.

When people act honourably, give them their due.
