top 75 [or so] listed here

My Top 7 on the Top 10:

1- Take out public services [schools, gov't] and the medical field is top dog.
2- I wonder where the Louisiana Ice Gators would have been on this list.
3- It's amazing to think that 10+ years ago Stuller Inc. was virutally non-existent.
4- For people complaining about a teacher shortage, who in the world makes up the 4500?
5- I predict Raising Cane's will make this list after they open 15 more stores locally. [ha!]
6- CC's isn't too far behind, they already have 4, who do they think they are, Starbucks?
7- Lafayette General Medical Center has the best web site design by far.
