As Wall Street's recklessness brings the country to its knees—and as the nearly $20 billion in bonuses claimed by bankers after the crisis began triggers mass outrage—is it time for the return of the bank robber as folk hero? The FBI is seeing a significant leap in bank robberies in many U.S. cities, including New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, and just as the real life Bonnie and Clyde were cheered on by the public during the Great Depression, one reporter suggests that it's now "proving hard to keep the public on the side of the law when banks are the only victims and the average haul is just $10,000, chump change on Wall Street." On a related note, Faye Dunaway is said to be unhappy that Hilary Duff will reprise the role of Bonnie in a remake of the 1967 classic, but we're guessing she'll be pleased that robbing banks for a living has never been more fashionable.
