No one at the Sun-Times gets to complain about pandering ever, ever again

The Sun-Times is like this-close to just taping dollar bills to the front page.

The online feature about hot fans (sorry, no link) is actually kind of creepy--nameless young women photographed by nameless photographers, and I doubt all the latter know all of the former. I would be lying if I said I was immune to photographs of pretty girls, but the whole thing feels kind of sketchy and stalkerish.* Didn't get far enough into the pics to see if any of the submissions of handsome young men, which is allegedly an option, actually made the cut. I'll be surprised.

*I have mixed feelings about street photography w/r/t invasion of privacy (I have a phobia about having my picture taken), but generally speaking I'll allow well-intentioned hobbies and arts some leeway. The above just seems loutish.
