By the Time I Get to Phoenix

The Phoenix Resource Investment Conference is well timed this year as it will have a focus on precious metals. While it is easy to make fun of the oversimplified zeal of the gold bugs, they've been right for the last 10 years (gold was the #3 performing commodity over the last decade). That's a pretty good run. There is nothing wrong with keeping things simple, especially if it works!

Here is where I'll be in Phoenix:

Don't forget the Roast of GATA Chairman Bill Murphy on Thursday night!

As a side note, I misspelled Phoenix in the header of my last email. It went out to over 5000 people. I get a slew of vacation autoresponders where I see the subject line... over and over. I probably type the word Phoenix correctly 99.9% of the time but now 5000 people think I'm illiterate.

Thank you for not jeering me with comments about it. No snide comment can compare to my own self-talk.

This brings me to one of the more popular posts of all time here at the Big Picture Speculator.
