Sociologist is one of best jobs according to Wall Street Journal

According to the venerable WSJ, being a  sociologist is one of teh top ten jobs in the US using a multiple criteria evaluation that includes salary, level of stress, workplace conditions and other commonsensical metrics.

Mathematician is #1.  Lumberjack is #200.
