Last week my wife and I watched a TV program highlighting the most popular television shows of all time.
Mary Ellen was delighted when Barbara Walters announced that their poll revealed “I Love Lucy” was ranked No. 1.
“Everyone loves a redhead,” my wife proclaimed. Mary Ellen is very fair and objective. It probably didn’t even dawn on her at that moment that she is a redhead. Out of sight, out of mind.
Does everyone really love redheads? I did a little Googling (as opposed to ogling, which redheads have always caused me to do) and discovered that history has had a fiery relationship with red-tressed women, depicting them in a variety of ways, and not always positive.
