The Rock City tobacco factory (owned by Rothmans, Benson & Hedges Inc.) still churns out millions of cigarettes per year.

Any Bob Newhart fans out there? Sure there are. The American comedian and actor, still performing occasionally at 89, is the master of the deadpan reaction. His specialty is one-sided telephone conversations, and perhaps his best-known bit is his transatlantic chat with Sir Walter Raleigh in the English colony of Virginia.
