Over at the Adsense forum [webmasterworld.com...] , the Adsense folks posted on their blog a new best practices guide with the recommended placement of the ads.
The main idea is that you can use Adsense, but you need to be sure that they don't take away from the content of the site. If you're running Adsense, take a look at the blog to see their recommended placement.
