A picture tells a thousand words :
This photo of the two East Africans who predictably came in first and second in yesterday's NYC marathon foot race (which curiously like the photo of the sole white male wheezing in the photo in my previous post - which appeared on the front page of the NYT today no less - were nowhere to be found on the Times' web site today) shows two gentlemen who are clearly from another epoch of human development. (As in, an epoch two to three hundred thousand years ago, maybe more).
When I first saw this picture, I honestly thought that the dude on the right - Geoffrey Mutai of Kenya - was the winner of the female race. "Wow, what nostrils" I thought, "Since when did Kenyans start having rhinoplasty to make it look like they had penii implanted on their faces?"
Yes, I know, that's not a very nice thing to say. But hey, can't I be disappointed that one of ours didn't win the race?
I guess not.
Says the New York Times :
And yet instead of admitting the obvious, the Times sticks to their time-honored narrative of all men exactly the same, No Matter What.
