Forbes plugs fund managers who like gold

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

While you live a (one may hope) normal life, GATA prowls
the recesses of the Internet day and night in search of
insight or at least the stray possibility that the U.S.
government's surreptitious stranglehold on the gold price
will be broken in our lifetime, or somebody's.

At this hour CBSMarketWatch has a great interview
with our friend John Hathaway of the Tocqueville gold
fund, who explains why the war in Iraq is not the
important factor in the gold price. You can find the
Hathaway interview here:

BF1C-D0FAAE23D895&siteid=mktw&dist=nbk

Meanwhile, the Bank of Japan has just announced that it
will make the rounds of that country's effectively
insolvent banks and increase its purchases of worthless
stock the banks are stuck with. You can find that story
here:

And Clive Roffey has a great commentary at 321Gold about
Durban Roodeport Deep amid the company's seemingly
endless management controversies:

Roffey concludes that there's nothing wrong with Durban
that a decent gold price won't cure.

Thanks so much to GATA's good friends who alert us to
news stories and commentaries of possible interest to
our supporters all around the world.
