Bank Of America Backlash of the Day: Score 1 for the 99: Backlash from consumers has forced Bank of America to ditch its plan to charge a $5 monthly fee on debit card usage.
“We have listened to our customers very closely over the last few weeks,” said Bank of America Co-Chief Operating Officer David Darnell, “and recognize their concern with our proposed debit usage fee.”
BoA’s shares dropped 6 percent in the wake of the announcement. Several banks recently decided to scrap similar test programs, while others canceled existing fees.
“It’s a sign of consumer power in action,” Norma Garcia of Consumers Union was quoted as saying. “This is a sign of the marketplace working.”
WHEN THEY SAY ‘MINIMUM SECURITY PRISON’ THEY ARE NOT JOKING.
WHITE COLLAR CRIME IS THE BEST.
I STILL CAN’T BELIEVE WE WENT TO JAIL AT ALL.
I KNOW, I THOUGHT OUR WHOLE THING WAS THAT WE COULD JUST TANK THE ECONOMY AND LAY OFF A COUPLE MILLION PEOPLE AND THEN JUST COLLECT OUR BONUSES AND GO TO CABO. ISN’T THAT HOW IT WORKS NOW?
WELL, YEAH, BUT TECHNICALLY WE FILED AS AN LLC NOT A PROPER CORPORATION SO SO WE CAN’T BLAME EVERYTHING ON A FAKE ‘PERSON’ AND BUY A NEW JET.
DAMN. WELL, AT LEAST WE WEREN’T SELLING MARIJUANA TO PAY RENT OR SOMETHING.
HA HA HA! I KNOW! WE’D BE IN JAIL FOR YEARS! REAL JAIL!
WHAT’S FOR LUNCH TODAY ANYWAY?
LOBSTER, I THINK.
AGAIN? JESUS. I’M GOING TO HAVE TO HIT THE ELLIPTICALS ALL AFTERNOON TO WORK OFF THAT BUTTER.
As you know if you saw our announcement yesterday, Think Magazine has merged with The Stony Brook Press. Thinkr will also be transitioning in accordance with these changes - you might have noticed our URL has changed from thinkmag to sbpress. We’re working on changing things like the theme, so be on the lookout for a redesign soon!
We’re excited to maintain a Tumblr presence for the new Press, but we do have one problem: We have no idea what to call this thing. “Pressr” just doesn’t have much of a ring to it. So we’re opening it up to our followers: any ideas?
An Important Announcement from The Stony Brook Press and Think Magazine
The Stony Brook Press and Think Magazine are delighted to announce that we are coming together to form Stony Brook University’s leading media organization.

We’re still working out details, but if the new Press includes a Tumblr presence, we’ll be sure to let you know! We hope you’ve enjoyed following us for the last several months.
A source with the University Police Department has confirmed that a fire broke out in the Earth and Space Sciences building late Monday night.

A firefighter on the scene stated that the fire occurred on the roof of the third floor of ESS and is under control as of 11:50, although firefighters are still visible on the roof of the building. No injuries have been reported.
Stay with Think for updates on the situation.
“So let’s talk about fucking, all right?” Ducky Doolittle said as she stood in front of a crowd of about 200 students on Wednesday night in the SAC Auditorium.
Invited to the Stony Brook University campus for the fifth time by the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Association (LGBTA), Ducky brought with her not only sex toys, but a new program titled Sex on Campus/Love U.
Ducky Doolittle is not only a sex educator and a sexual assault counselor, but both a self-proclaimed “badass” and “awesomesexual” (the only kind of people that she sleeps with are awesome).
She strutted around stage in a black mini-dress and massive stilettos, words like “cock” “twat” and “pussy” dropping multiple times in a minute.
