Michael, your apparent "joke" is not that funny--not that funny at all.
Not everybody has heard that "SUGI" has been renamed the "SAS Global
Forum". Think about it; that announcement was made on Sunday, only four
days ago. So, your "announcement" engendered more confusion than humor.
Michael, leave the comedy to Jay Leno and David Letterman, and stick to
SAS-oriented postings on the 'L!
I hope that this suggestion proves helpful now, and in the future!
