The Nuevo York Times


Hey gringo! You please tell me another funny joke 'bout mejicanos that are lazy and only do nothing and sleep all to mañana and don't have no money?

Carlos Slim just loaned the New York Times $250m. Pachakuti strikes again, as Slim's idea of hobby money to snag a trophy bails out some desperate Statesiders in a dying industry. The guy already owns a touch under 7% of the NYT, and as this loan is guaranteed by a lump of stock, he could move to 17% stakeholder at any given moment.

Hey, Carlos...get us a better class of LatAm correspondent, please?
