This crash brought to you by.....

I'm getting fed up with the random ads that are inserted into the various news articles I read.

You read about a fatal crash and there's a pictorial ad for weight loss between the first two paragraphs. Or dating. Or a community college.

Shouldn't there be some kind of oversight as to the appropriateness of an ad that accompanies a news story?

Your mind automatically seeks a picture to view that goes with the story, and when you see a woman in a bikini or an ad for Arby's, it just ain't right.

There ought to be a better way.

And here I thought I was the only one that noticed and became infuriated over things like that!

P.S. Thanks for the comforting words.
