Best of the Fool 2000
Week of March 13, 2000
The Motley Fool publishes more than a dozen articles every market day. Most are replaced by brand spankin' new articles within 24 hours, and then the articles are banished to the Motley Fool archives. Though not a bad place to hang out, veteran archived articles recently revolted and demanded better placement on the Fool site. After hearing their demands, we wholeheartedly agreed.
There are numerous articles whose Foolish message and timelessness deserve a place to call their own. We quickly signed a treaty with the articles and created a place just for them. And that place is (trumpets please!)...The Best of the Fool.
One week each quarter, five of our favorite and most memorable Fool articles will find a new home in this hallowed hall. Check back each day during that week to find out the new entrant to our Foolish Hall of Fame.
