Six degree of nothing

Billionaire Sam Zell may or may not be dangling the Los Angeles Times in front of billionaire David Geffen, who, LA Observed reports, was recently seen having dinner with billionaire Eli Broad, who's also made noise about buying the paper.

Meanwhile, another richie, Brian Greenspun, owner of the Las Vegas Sun and plenty of Las Vegas real esate, is reportedly dangling a job before "hyperlocal" webmeister Rob Curley.

What's the connection? Nothing really, except that Greenspun has hired a number of ex-LA Times editors at the Sun and his family has a "significant" investment in the Tribune Co. That led to billionaire Zell appointing Greenspun to the Tribune board.
