The Starbucks 2 Settle Lawsuit With Company for "Undisclosed Sum" and Promise of a Free College Education; They Settle With City for $1 and a Promise of the City Putting Aside $200,000 to Fund Young Entrepreneurs

Say -- weren't the Starbucks 2 trespassing while waiting to hear from a guy about investing?

Doesn't that mean they're entrepreneurs?

Well, they did manage to generate a combined eight (or more) years of college tuition -- something like $800,000 or so, I reckon -- for twenty minutes' work.

This has to be the most profitable theatrical production in history, on a ROI basis.

Two black men arrested for sitting at a Philadelphia Starbucks without ordering anything settled with the coffee-shop chain Wednesday for an undisclosed sum and an offer of a free college education.

Separately, they reached a deal with the city for a symbolic $1 each and a promise from officials to set up a $200,000 program for young entrepreneurs.

The men and their lawyer said the agreement with the city was an effort to make sure something positive came out of the April 12 incident, which touched off a furor around the U.S. over racial profiling.

"We thought long and hard about it, and we feel like this is the best way to see that change that we want to see," said Donte Robinson, one of those arrested. "It's not a right-now thing that's good for right now, but I feel like we will see the true change over time."

What selfless samaritans. They had to think long and hard about accepting a "undisclosed sum" of money and a promise of having their college tuition paid.
