However, if the girl is not so pretty, nobody will look.
This brilliant discovery has led me to search everywhere for pictures of pretty girls, so I can post them on my web site and trick people into reading my other stuff.
Then, I realized that I was not the first to discover this. Absolutely every publication anywhere of any kind whatever publishes pictures of good looking women whenever they can find an excuse to do so, and often when there is no excuse.
Even Chess Life magazine constantly publishes ads showing a photo of a good looking girl playing chess. Every issue has the same girl, and I am sure that she does not know the difference between a rook and a bishop.
Here is a photo published by "The Good, Gray Times" on May 6, 1998. Does this photo have any news value? Is The New York Times just trying to sell some newspapers?
