Nice Try, Phillip Morris!

Philip Morris Co. has changed their name to Altria in an attempt to make people FORGET that they're the same company that has been rightfully persecuted for hiding tobacco's addictive qualities from the public for years and years... not to mention making billions and billions (in my best Carl Sagan) of dollars by doing so.

But did everyone know that he name Altria was coined from "altus" -- the Latin word for "high"?

Pretty funny! Sorry folks, even your nifty new logo doesn't ease my state of mind about your state of affairs.
