Daily Ranking: Lucky Number

No, not a reference to Nick Perry.

Bloomberg nee BusinessWeek has us tagged as the 7th best place for college graduates.   An interesting perspective given that we are retaining so many college graduates as it is right now. I won't say it, but have we put a stake into QQQQQQ QQQQQ QQQ.
