I could not find a copy of it on the Times' website, (gee, I wonder why?) so I had to take a picture of it off the hard-copy front page myself and post it for you.
Yes, that is how much I hate the New York Times.
Notice anything peculiar about this front page foto?
Spend sixty seconds studying it then report back.
(sound of clock ticking)
You're back? Good. Let's analyze together:
First of all, a reminder that this photo was published prominently above-the-fold on the front page of today's national edition. To break from standard COTT form, here's that front page :
So what's so relevant about this picture?
Answer: notice the way that the only person in focus in the whole shot, is a sole white male.
More significantly, a sole white male of a certain age, who appears to be huffing and puffing, in the midst of a crowd of far younger, more racially diverse, majority female runners.
What is the Times saying here?
Answer: that this guy is going to have a stroke before he reaches the finish line.
COTT interpretation: the white male is the past, the non white-male is the future of civilization.
It's that simple really. That is the thrust of what the Times has been suggesting for years now.
