The series compares the role of charitable organizations in the current Philip-Morris "image ad" campaign to the temptation to use the power of the Ring in the cause of good. The case she makes is definitely anti-tobacco companies, but it's a little more complicated than "Ring = bad; tobacco companies = bad". Along with being an interesting use of the Ring's "applicability," the series also answered a few questions I've had about that ad campaign (e.g., are the charities required to participate in the ads in order to receive the donations?).

> I just made a few more trials of the link to Cate Plys's Chicago Sun-Times columns and, as seems not unusual with such things, it worked once and twice came up with "Page not Found". You can also enter through the Sun-Times home page, go to Commentary, and click on Cate Plys. The columns appear with, not surprisingly, exactly the same address as given in the link.
I copied it (right click on link and choose "Copy Shortcut" in IE), pasted it into my Netscape browser, which had not been to Sun Times since browser cache was emptied last, and it worked. I can't imaging where the /plys/html thing came from. That makes no sense. URLs should end in [something].htm(l) or .asp or whatever, not [something]/htm(l)
