Tip: accessing subscriber articles from the Wall Street Journal

Sometimes while clicking on a link it will take me to a Wall Street Journal article that is for subscribers only; non-subscribers get a teaser paragraph and an encouragement to subscribe. But this tip I saw somewhere nearly always works, if the article is very recent: copy the headline to the clipboard, go to Google News (news.google.com), paste the headline into the search box, and click the search button. It will come usually come up with a link to the same article on the WSJ website, but clicking on it will show the entire article. I assume Google News has some sort of arrangement with WSJ about this.
