can you replace:



  (select last_value from business_name_business_name_seq)

or, more defensively coded:

  (select max(last_value) from business_name_business_name_seq)

i am assuming business_name_business_name_seq is some kind of one-row
table that is always guaranteed (how?) to have one row and sort of fakes
a sequence (which brings the question of why not use a true sequence?)
