Bank of Amerillwide is apparently supposed to announce today (if they haven't already) that the firm will be eliminating all plastic knives, forks, and spoons, in addition to paper plates and styrofoam cups. All associates will receive "a BAC-branded coffee cup that its biodegradable in landfills over a five year period." According to one disgruntled styro-loving employee "they are spinning it to sound like its being done to save the environment but it's obviously just another crushing blow to employee morale." OR: it's a company-wide welcome wagon to the Merrill people, who we're told prefer consuming food Medieval Times-style, and the Countrywiders, who 9 times out of 10 will pick a feed-bag over a knife and fork. Only Ken Lewis knows for sure.
