Subject: Post-Gazette's mug shot page

Usually don't read the PG, but yesterday I got a copy and turned to the sports section. There were five bylined articles on the first page of sports and all five had their mug shots with their stories: Ed Bouchette (Steeler story), Stephen Nesbitt (Pirate game story), Jenn Menendez (Pitt story), Megan Ryan (Penn State story), Ron Cook (column). Why does everybody who writes a story in sports get their head shot in the paper? It looks ridiculous. I didn't see this in other sections of paper.

The paper could save money by publishing just the head shots and deleting the copy.

It would be significant if it meant they told the beat writers to file stories that contained more analysis and opinion. In essence, make their stories more like columns. But it appears they're filing the usual stuff, which means the mug shot thing is just a pointless gimmick.
