Now that you mention it, Mr. Walnuts, New Jersey is actually a very wonderful state: The maker of Dove brand deodorants has walked back an ad campaign that took a good-natured dig at New Jersey as the “Armpit of America” (Business Briefly, Page A9).

Company officials were convinced to ditch the billboards during a visit in the parking lot from a Garden State delegation led by Anthony “Tony Bagels” Brancaccio and Vincenzo “Vinny Carwash” Manocchio.

A hedge fund manager must’ve gotten sick: New York City health inspectors recently found more than three dozen food safety violations at Per Se, a restaurant that offers a $310-per-person chef’s tasting menu.

If the report survives an appeal process, it will require Per Se to display a Mr. Yuk sticker next to its three Michelin stars.

10 minutes to “Matlock”: The broadcast TV networks are now rolling out new shows aimed at affluent baby boomers.

Instead of younger viewers, the networks are now chasing folks who don’t use DVRs and the Internet.
