The Feste Award meant a lot to MichelReed, who was so well-liked that he was nominated several times. http://www.fool.com/specials/2006/06012600sp.htmWhen MichaelR finally won the Feste Award in 2008, he was very gratified but characteristically joked about it.http://boards.fool.com/acceptance-speech-26525065.aspx?sort=...http://boards.fool.com/the-actual-feste-award-28235381.aspxFor all his humor, Michael derived a great deal of pleasure and pride in knowing that his friends on The Motley Fools valued him enough to vote him a Feste Award.Since Michael died recently, let us remember him while nominating and voting for the Feste Award. Let's also remember his words, humorous but serious.http://boards.fool.com/on-the-battlements-last-time-30112088...MichaelR in sepulchral tones: “Beware the transience of fame. It is fleeting and what was once regaled can turn to ashes. Time passes and with its passage fame lost like a ship’s wake that is smoothed by the tide.”Wendy
I would like to suggest that this award be renamed in honor of its most persistent self-promoter. "The MichaelRead Memorial Feste Award," perhaps? A "Michael" for short, maybe?ThyPeace, has been thinking about this ever since Michael died.
