Front Page of Journal to Get Ads - New York Times

Front Page of Journal to Get Ads - New York Times: "The Wall Street Journal calls it a 'jewel box,' but readers of its front page will know it by its common name: advertising.
The Journal confirmed yesterday the speculation that it would open its front page to advertisers, probably in September, a move that could bring in tens of millions of dollars a year in revenue. "

I haven't read the dead-tree version of the WSJ since summer, 1996 (the day I downloaded IE3, to be precise; Microsoft had a deal with in conjunction with the launch of IE3, and I've been a happy subscriber since), so the front page ads won't bug me, but the Flash ads on the main page of definitely bug me...
