Yesterday, a friend wrote to report that an ad for a Republican candidate was showing up on the right sidebar of this site and requested it be taken down. Others have commented, poked fun really, about various weird ads popping up from time to time.

There’s something you should know. These are google ads, which means what you see is based on a complex formula that includes your browsing history and anything else the internet knows about you. If you’re getting ads for Republican candidates, right wing crap, or things involving farm animals, it’s all you baby.

When I come to the site, I’m usually served Chanel, Ann Taylor, Burpee Seeds or iStock Photo ads. Yes, the internet knows where you live. According to the terms of the google ad agreement, site authors are not permitted to suggest readers click ads, so I’ll just let you connect those dots about whose wealth you’d like to redistribute.
