I'd like to nominate Morgan Hafer as a possible recipient of this year's Marcus Cook Award. Morgan's spent over a decade in the tireless effort to keep the messenger scene real. And he's done it without worrying about how many eggs you have to break to make an omelette. A veteran of DC, Boston, New York (and I think possibly Richmond and Chicago too), Morgan's been out there, speaking his mind. And without any fear of what it might cost him. Alienating long time friends? Lost jobs? Chased out of town? Sure. All to keep it real for the messenger brothers and sisters. While we've all been out there just delivering packages, he's been out there delivering packages and keeping it real. In more ways than most would care to admit, Morgan is the single most real bike messenger in the world. Failing to honor him by awarding him the MCA would be a criminal oversight.
