Thoughts on Google Ads

I pondered whether including Google Ads would be disruptive or disreputable. I've kept them, not only to help support my espresso habit, but because they represent a valuable real-time commentary on what the markets find interesting. Even the ads I disapprove of -- like those advertising herbal cures for kidney failure or for centers offering transplants from "altruistic donors" -- show the types of advertising patients are exposed to and the types of alternative therapies they may be considering. (Put another way: ads are content.) I've decided the benefits of ads are worth purposefully including them, in small doses, in the main text.
