With the closing of PayDirt I wonder what role my friend Jim Gillies has with The Motley Fool.

This guy is smart, indefatigable, funny, loyal, and a generous teacher. Has anyone explained stock options or CAPM or arbitrage so clearly before, using real companies to illustrate? If Jim recommends a stock, I trust that he has shaken the company inside-out to make sure he knows the full story. PayDirt may have gotten off to a rough start, but I bet that over the long haul Jim’s picks will put him at the top of the TMF performance scoreboard.

So I hope my friends in Alexandria find something “Canuck” can dig his teeth into, for all of our benefit. Jim represents the very best in what I believe the Fool aspires to be.

I am going to post this note on a few boards. If you share my view, add your two cents.
