    Loved this confirmation of what public relations folks already knew. PR is one of the world’s most stressful professions. The list is from the 1989 “Jobs Rated Almanac.”

    The 15 most stressful jobs:

    1. Firefighter
    2. Race car driver (Indy class)
    3. Astronaut
    4. Surgeon
    5. NFL football player
    6. Police officer
    7. Osteopath
    8. State police officer
    9. Air traffic controller
    10. Mayor
    11. Jockey
    12. Public relations specialist
    13. Photojournalist
    14. Advertising account executive
    15. NCAA basketball coach

    Finishing behind PR on the list were stockbrokers, attorneys, senators and representatives, physicians and pro basketball and baseball players.
