Phillip Morris in Richmond

As the living conditions of masses of ordinary people in Richmond plumment to ever-greater depths, Phillip Morris expands with a huge new complex in the cities downtown. It is a "research center." What socially useful research could develop from studies on how to continue to profit off of a deadly product is a curious question indeed.

And of course, the company didn't even clean up after itself, within the same city. No more than two miles away from the new complex, a facility occupying an entire block sits unused.

There is no shortage of ancient cars in Richmond, or cranky old overloaded pickups carrying pallets, scrap, junk, and trash around.
