“You want to pay me to NOT wear your clothes!?” - Abercrombie & Fitch Co. is offering money to Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and his fellow "Jersey Shore" cast members -- so they'll stop wearing the brand on the show. Abercrombie says a connection to The Situation goes against the "aspirational nature" of its brand and may be "distressing" to customers. The Ohio-based retailer says it has offered a "substantial payment" to Sorrentino and producers of the MTV show so he'll wear something else. The company says it also is making the offer to others in the hard-partying cast.

I love Starbucks even more now! Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has decided that he's not going to give political donations to anyone, and he's asking others to follow his lead. Schultz wrote in a letter that was distributed to members of the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq, "I am asking that all of us forgo political contributions until the Congress and President return to Washington and deliver a fiscally, disciplined long term debt and deficit plan to the American people."
