    The only reason some people think it's the "worst" is because of the press and people like you who continue to harp on the past!! Brian is righting the mess that Ken Lewis made but none of you talking heads will ever discuss the big differences in philosophies since Brian took the top job. Just more BS. Please sell your 5 shares.

    I keep my BoA account because they have really good online services. I can even deposit my checks with my phone now. It's very convenient. Yes, they do have high fees in some areas, but they have lots of ATMs and branches everywhere. Sometimes that's more important.
