Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
Maybe I have an excuse. Mark Twain tried very hard to learn German and wrote afterward that German should be classified with the dead languages because only the dead had the time to learn it.
Still, I’m really glad to be here, since at least many of you speak English as well as German and since I’ve just come from London, where hardly anyone speaks English.
For the first 48 hours I was in London the only person I heard speaking English was the hotel desk clerk, and she didn’t seem too happy about it. The first time I heard English on the street it was from a guy who recognized me as an American rube and asked me for money.
