While Whole Foods (WFMI) CEO John Mackey's apology about posting anonymously on message boards is plain and abject and all, why didn't a release go out on the wires? Sure, there are Reuters stories about the website post at Whole Foods, but I can't find the unadulterated apology on any of the usual wires.

Whole Foods Market today released the following statement from Co-founder, Chairman and CEO, John Mackey: "I sincerely apologize to all Whole Foods Market stakeholders for my error in judgment in anonymously participating on online financial message boards. I am very sorry and I ask our stakeholders to please forgive me."

Was it posted anonymously on some message board instead? I kid! I kid!
