First, most of the article's comments are depressing, but not at all surprising.
Second, as much as I like gold, I think the guy's being a bit silly. Why can't he just take his FRNs and buy gold himself? After all, he's going to need *some* FRNs for day to day stuff, unless he expects the Stop and Shop down the street to accept Krugerrands. I 'get' what he's trying to do, but is this really the best way to make the case for gold?
Third, the story itself, as well as many of the comments is just another example of people on all sides blowing crap out of proportion. Gee, what a surprise.
