I hope this will be seen as the Good Spam of the North... I'm just posting it to a few friendly boards.

If you've been busy badgering (whoops -- I mean politely requesting) your local radio station to carry the Fool radio show, you might also be interested in another way to get a weekly dose of Fooldom -- in newsprint.

I want to call attention to our nationally syndicated newspaper feature, in case some of you aren't aware of it.

It has five elements:
-- Ask the Fool: questions and answers on basic investing
-- The Fool School: a lesson on an investing concept
-- My Dumbest/Smartest Investment: a reader's story
-- The Fool Take: a take on a recent stock in the news
-- Name that Company: a contest where you... name that company

At this page: you can check out a list of the 120+ papers that have already signed up for us. If your local paper isn't listed, I encourage you to give the business editor a jingle and ask them to consider carrying it.

Hearing that actual subscribers and readers want to read a certain feature makes a big decision in what they choose to carry. Yes, you'll be doing us a favor by helping spread Foolishness across the land. you'll also be doing a lot of your neighbors a favor, by helping them learn more about investing.

Anyone interested can e-mail me at: and I'll be happy to find the phone number for your local paper. Or just check your phone book.

If the editor asks, we're syndicated by Universal Press Syndicate -- they can sign up for us through UPS.

Thanks, and sorry for the intrusion/interruption. To compensate, I'll offer some content. In my next post, I'll include a sample of what you'd read in our weekly feature.
