Take the company, pull it out of Minnesota where meddling politicians and ineffectual senior management have killed it dead. Sound familiar? Look at the past 36 months of financial activity in Minnesota. ADC, MoneyGram, NWA, now Lawson, and soon both Medtronic and Carlson.

this is not fair - ICAHN should not be allowed to have so much money - take it from him and give it to the people !!!!!!

This is in my ward, who would have known this could happen right in my own ward. When did Lawson move in anyway?

Annette,

"Non-Factor for years"? Being a market analyst, I can say that Lawson has dominated ERP software sales the Healthcare industry for a long time. They have made great strides in retail in recent years, and they now have the only truly unified HR offering in the industry due to their recent acquisition of Enwisen. If you are going to post something online just to post something, use craigslist.com . That's a more appropriate website for people of your intelligence level.
