Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Our excursion to the New Orleans Investment Conference
was a big success and a little emotional.

Not long ago GATA Chairman Bill Murphy was finding
doors barred to him. Now he is being invited as a
speaker to international conferences.

The New Orleans conference was especially important to

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Two of our friends recently raised with me by e-mail an issue
that may be on the minds of others.

The first wrote: "Has anyone ever thought that when the media
start saying that the gold market is manipulated to control spot
prices, your average investor would take this as a reason to stay
away from gold? Sometimes one can't even win for winning!"

Will exposure of price manipulation actually hurt gold?

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Please excuse the erroneous transmission to you
earlier today of my newspaper column in Connecticut,
which had nothing to do with GATA and gold. It was
