Nobody ever went broke saving money. -- Twain

[Many of you have responded to our call and have phoned or e-mailed editors. We thank you! Our sales reps calling on editors across the country also appreciate it, as it makes selling the Fool to a newspaper a lot easier if they've already heard from readers about us. Let the campaign continue!]

Fools on Phones!
(politely) demand to see the Fool in newsprint

[We update this list periodically. Check below to see if your paper has picked us up!]

Hey, Fool. You've probably heard that The Fool is now syndicated in newspapers across the country -- a total of over 75 papers, including 13 of the top 50. Many of you already sip coffee over printed Folly each Monday morning.

But what about the rest of you?

You say you're not in the neighborhood of the L.A. Times or the Miami Herald? You can't pick up a copy of the Rocky Mountain News or the Atlanta Journal-Constitution? Hmph. If you don't want to miss printed Foolishness each week -- from investment strategies, to trivia games, to seeing your name in lights across the country because you submitted a Dumbest Investment -- what can you do?

Give your local newspaper editor a jingle and demand some Foolishness! Demand will create supply. Our mission is to teach everyone in America -- no matter how tall or short, how old or young -- to begin saving and investing for their and their kids' future. What better place than America's newspaper. . . what better place than your newspaper?

Call and ask for the business editor. (You can e-mail a bunch of these papers, too, but phone calls are more effective.) Tell them they can get the Fool by contacting the good folks at Universal Press Syndicate in Kansas City.

Below are papers which haven't yet signed up for the Fool in print. (**The ones marked by asterisks have signed up to carry Foolish content on their website, and we're hoping they'll soon carry us in print, as well.)
