I'm extremely proud to announce that for the second consecutive year, Morgan Housel's Fool.com columns have won a Best in Business award from SABEW, the Society of American Business Editors and Writers.

You can see the full list of winners here and here (second link opens PDF file). We were recognized in the opinion/column category for large websites.

Here are a few of his 2010 highlights:

I'd like to congratulate Morgan and all our Fool.com editors for their hard work! (To follow Morgan's work, subscribe to his RSS feed.)

Thanks for reading, and Fool on.
