“SAS layoffs? Execs say no”:http://www.newsobserver.com/104/story/435689.html

i’m in the SAS.com department mentioned in the article. things at work have been tense lately, and indeed the rumor mill has been flying, but the consensus seems to be that my group is safe– for now. we’ve been moved into IT after a few years in Marketing, which is just so the wrong place to put your web geeks. I’m happy to be back in IT and I think the other folks who were there in the past, too, are feeling positive about it.
