Style Time Series Plots Like the Wall Street Journal

Easily override the default visual choices in 'ggplot2' to make your time series plots look more like the Wall Street Journal. Specific theme design choices include omitting x-axis grid lines and displaying sparse light grey y-axis grid lines. Additionally, this allows to label the y-axis scales with your units only displayed on the top-most number, while also removing the bottom most number (unless specifically overridden). The goal is visual simplicity, because who has time to waste looking at a cluttered graph?
