About my amazing powers.
I busted out laughing at the end of the Book Review's "Nonfiction Chronicle" when I came upon this passage from Marion Roach's The Roots of Desire: The Myth, Meaning, and Sexual Power of Red Hair:
"That redheads are untrustworthy, fiery, unstable, hot-tempered, highly sexed, rare creatures is what passes for common knowledge today," writes Roach, a redhead herself. "While we no longer burn them at the stake, we still carry potent, inflammatory beliefs about their power."
It's a shame that Roach no longer carries inflammatory beliefs about herself. I, on the other hand, continue to believe that my hair is not red at all, but orange.
