Good on us!

Your link is legit, but some news sources are reporting Houston at 168 (like this one http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/s...2/daily35.html), others at 145. I wonder why the discrepancy?

I had noticed that too.

Also, since when is "Dallas-Fort Worth" a city? Everything else on the list is a single-city category.
