Excerpts from LeMetropoleCafe''s ''Midas'' commentary for August 22, 2003

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Tan Range Exploration CEO Jim Sinclair's two
commentaries today, "Heads Up" and "Look for
Contradictions in Order to Find Direction," are
urgent reading. They provide more evidence
of desperate action by the U.S. government to
support the dollar and treasury bond market.

You can find Sinclair's commentaries here:
