Northern Trust got blasted for having Earth Wind & Fire and Sheryl Crow perform concerts at the Northern Trust Open last February... and that's why they just announced that there will be no live music acts at this years golf tournament.
So why did they get blasted? Simple, because they took $1.58 billion in bailout money from the Troubled Asset Relief Program. Yes, they have repaid that money, but they are going to stick with golf-related speakers this year. Smart move.
