See anything funny on the Sentinel's front page today?

I did. See if you can spot it.

[EDIT: The Sentinel is now showing today's cover, no yesterday's. Next time I have to create my own image rather than linking theirs. Sorry.]

It wasn't just that the Doggystyle Dyerâ?¢ story took precedent over the water wars and Gov. Spitzer's mess. Look at the bottom-right corner. See that? An ad. On the front page.

So, looks like the new Sam Zell Tribune is getting desperate for new revenue, journalism be damned. (For those of you not indoctrinated in J-school, ads on the front page are almost universally frowned upon by editorial folks; the ad guys love them.) How much you wanna bet that within a year, those ads make it above the fold?
