I was reading a href=”http://health.msn.com/health-topics/articlepage.aspx?cp-documentid=100216242GT1=31036″this MSN article /aabout America’s most stressful cities. It seems that Chicago is the #1 most stressful city in the US:br /br /blockquoteThe crisis on Wall Street has New Yorkers alarmed. But it’s nothing compared to the levels of anxiety those living in the Windy City feel each day.br /br /Chicago’s rising unemployment rate, expensive gas, high population density and relatively poor air quality create a perfect storm of stress, according to measures we used to calculate the country’s anxiety hot spots…..br /br /But consumers aren’t fretting about these pressures in a vacuum. A city’s environment can play a big role in how its citizens are able to cope with stress./blockquotebr /br /After reading about all of the problems in Chicago, I have a few questions. If Obama was such a successful community organizer, state senator and US senator, why is his city listed as “the most stressful in the US?” And if his “hope and change” mantra can’t improve much in his hometown, is this a harbinger of things to come for the entire country if Obama gets elected? In other words, will the entire US become more like Chicago then before? Is this what we have to look forward to should Obama be elected?
