The links you see just below the 'And now a word from..." area on the JSN web site help us to pay for this web site.
These small ads help to pay for the web hosting and maintenance of Jumpseatnews.
One day, we may take them off and revert to being 100% ad-free. But for now, while we try to stay afloat in our crappy U.S. economy, we need this extra help in paying for upkeep of this site. They aren't too ugly and besides, you might see something listed here of interest!
