a few paragraphs detailing why this person deserves the award

Fwiw, I didn't do this because roark's posts make it self-evident who he is. That said, to comply with the letter of the law:

Roark is the epitome of what makes Motley Fool so valuable. Briefly, the guy is:

* Smart as a whip, and able to address a multiple of topics

* Utter un-condescending, patiently explaining the most complex concepts in great detail

* A person who can flat out write. Roark's notes are unfailingly a joy to read.

* Someone who will meaningfully improve a stock picker's investment results. Roark gives investors an comprehensive prospective on options, operating leases, pensions, and other oftentimes arcane but highly important topics.

Granted, I have heard that in person roark has bad breath, crooked teeth, un-kept hair, and a squeaky voice, but as a cyber entity that should not enter consideration...
