The typical New York Times reader dismisses the New York Post as a tabloid which caters to people's basest instincts -- which is precisely why I prefer the Post. My baseness, and the Post's more commonsensical editorial section. (And make no mistake, the editorializing in both newspapers extends to their decisions about which news to put on the front page.)
You're certainly going to learn a lot more about human nature by reading a "lurid, sensationalistic" paper like the Post than you are by reading the Times, which has downright Victorian sensibilities when it comes to describing human nature as it really is.
Aaron Hernandez has recently been in the Post quite frequently, for his double murder trial, his jailhouse fights, his suicide, his gay prison fling, his financial status, and so on. He was pretty much trouble personified.
And every time I would see a picture of Hernandez --
-- I would be struck by his low hairline. It was hard to escape the conclusion that that low forehead, coupled with his high testosterone (he was 6' 2", 235, and a professional football player) made Hernandez's life of violence seem almost preordained.
Two days ago the Post had an article about the Phoenix serial killer having been caught, and ran this picture of him:
His name, coincidentally, is Aaron Juan Saucedo. For a period of about five months, between March and July of 2016, he terrorized a mostly Hispanic neighborhood in Phoenix by randomly shooting people after dark.
It's my vague impression that about half the time I see a photograph of someone with such a strikingly low hairline, it's in connection with a violent crime.
I realize I'm not dealing with a lot of data points here. And I'm sure there are more people with such low foreheads who are not murderers than who are.
Nonetheless, there does seem to be a correlation.
The only other conclusion I could come to is that you should beware of people named Aaron.
