Carlos Loret de Mola points out that Calderón will soon face a decision about whether to award Banxico boss Guillermo Ortiz another term in office or replace him. Ortiz is well respected, but Calderón was a driver in his ouster as Finance Secretary when he was the PAN president in 1998. Loret wonders whether ancient grudges will play a bigger role than recent performance.
Loret's column's aren't for everyone, but if for no other reason they are fun to read for the comments beneath. I can think of no author in Mexico who provokes such anger. In the above column, one of them called him a disgusting man. Another column last week spurred a Torreón resident to leave a comment (which was subsequently deleted) questioning Loret's anatomical wholeness.
