Numero Uno


This sign greeted me as I was driving into work this morning for a routine appointment at our onsite health care center. Appropriate, don't you think?

Last year at this time, I downplayed the importance of being the actual #1 company to work for, stating that the "staying power" that SAS has in the annual ranking is more important than the actual rank.

Okay, now that SAS is the #1 place to work in the Fortune ranking, I take it back. It's really better to be on top.

    Congratulations Chris to you and all of the folks there at SAS. I had not seen this news but it is not a surprise.

    Have some M&Ms for me.
