To which the Buffalo Business Journal adds that DFW's also Top 2, behind Houston, when it comes to the number of private-sector gigs created between June '05 and last month, with 71,300 added. Interestingly, the bureau offers three separate breakdowns for the area: Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington, Dallas-Plano-Irving and Fort Worth-Arlington. So long, DFW; howdo, DPI?
