Maybe they're looking to boost their hit count as well

The Chron uses its whimsical puns quotient in this front page story on the Women of Enron, then gets all metaphorical on the editorial pages:

It's blushingly appropriate for the times, some would say, that on the same day WorldCom was making headlines for having overstated its cash flow by more than $3.8 billion, "the women of Enron" were making a splash and some cash by baring their personal assets in Playboy magazine.

Had the same level of transparency applied to WorldCom, the nation's second-largest long-distance carrier, to Enron and to a growing host of other corporate giants, investors and employees might not be losing the proverbial shirts off their backs and the fig leaf of corporate ethics wouldn't be in the media mulcher.

These things just write themselves sometimes, don't they?
