Icon13 CVS changes name, stops tobacco sales early

As CVS sharpens its focus on customer health, the nation's second-largest drugstore chain will tweak its corporate name and stop the sale of tobacco nearly a month sooner than planned.

Huh. Things have changed considerably since I worked for them in their corporate offices. No more gold-embossed $6 million checks from RJ Reynolds... (yes, I personally handled one. It was actually a bit titillating, that much potential money in my hands [for all of ten seconds]! )

All you have to do is shine one snake, smack him on the head a few times and then the shine carries over to all the snakes.
