So Carlos Slim has sunk $250 Million into the ailing NY Times.

What is Mr. Slim really looking to do here? Turn it around and make gobs of money like he did with TelMex, the Mexican phone company, or lose his shirt like he did when he bought CompUSA and promptly saw it go to hell?

(I’m kinda thinkin’ this is gonna be CompUSA-ey…the NYT is owing a lot of people a lot of money now it will owe a lot to Mr. Slim in the form of 14% interest. And believe me, I WANT the NYT to go all CompUSA-ey.)
