Nothing personal: Whole Foods Markets no longer will accept personal checks at its stores in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas.

But if you leave your credit card or cash-filled coffee can at home, fear not: Whole Foods still will gladly accept your entire paycheck as payment.

What could go wrong? Tonight on “Restaurant Startup,” the judges hear from a recently divorced couple who want to start an anchovy-and-rock-and-roll-themed restaurant called Bon Chovie.

Sounds like a better name for that business would be Instant Tax Shelter.

A whopper of a drag: Burger King says it's in talks to buy the Canadian coffee-and-doughnut chain Tim Hortons and create the world's third-largest fast-food restaurant company — which, for tax reasons, would be headquartered in Toronto, not BK's current home in Miami.

Not sure who should be more ticked off about this: Canadians, because a national icon is being assimilated by the Yanks, or Americans, because another corporation is skipping out on paying taxes.
