I really wish there were a pic that shows what all their faces looked like in the end. :/ Several of the cutlines allude to some interesting things but then you don't show any of them. This is something I've noticed with the Missourian a lot lately.

I'd rather see more slideshows with a lot of photos that tell the full story than a handful of artistic photos that leave me hanging.
