Putting a face?

They've done it again on

Veteran Toronto Sun police desk vet Rob Lamberti puts a lot of effort into the annual roundup of Toronto's Top 10 bank bandit photos and profiles of the holdups.

The tab-style two-page spread in Monday's print edition clearly shows bank camera technology has improved 10-fold since Rob's roundup last year. Clear faces for many of the bandits, a much better chance of arrests being made.

"Putting a face on Toronto's most Wanted" is the headline in print and online - but there are no faces to be seen online, just text.

The absurdity of using text only for a second consecutive year, dear readers, befuddles us to no end.

Do the Sun web guys not get the point of "putting a face on Toronto's most wanted?"

All kinds of directional signs are pointing Sun readers to but with decisions like this being made, they are not going to be too impressed.

The two-page spread in the print edition must be making most of the bank bandits caught on camera extremely nervous.

Their photos online would increase the fear-of-capture factor.

(Update: One arrest, nine to go.)
