Redhead Demise
Redheads set for extinction. Makes me feel just a little bad about being so grateful for my black-haired husband. Gotta love those dominant genes.

The other night I was home alone and happened to switch to a channel halfway into the documentary called Jonestown: The Life and Death of Peoples Temple. I really had no idea. Being only one and a half when it happened, I probably heard references to the Jonestown Massacre when the Hale-Bopp thing happened. But I truly had no idea. If you have any way of seeing the doco, I'd highly recommend it. I watched horrified and even cried at the end when they showed actual photographs of bodies... hundreds of bodies lying face-down on the ground after having consumed the cyanide.

But in much brighter documentary news, be sure to see the trailer for the Sigur Rós doco titled "Heima".

That article on redhead extinction is an urban legend if I ever saw one... I believe Snopes has a page on it somewhere. Wouldn't be the first time coming from the Courier-Mail.

I saw the Jonestown doco too! Very very sad.
