New plan for the New York Times, which is running on fumes: Sell newspapers for $1.50 on the newstand and then, after they sell out and thousands line up at world headquarters to get a copy, sell them on the Internet with a 996% markup a day later.*

*The plan only works on days after the United States elects its first black president.
