What Is It...

with journals that like to run photos sans captions? For instance, here Reason runs a photo next to a piece that mentions at least nine living people. (I'm pretty sure the photo is not of Mises, Hayek, or Keynes.) How in the world are we supposed to know which of them is pictured in the photograph? And if we don't know who the photo is of, what is the point of it? "Ooh, someone probably mentioned in this story looks like this!"
