Saw this in the store today. I'm anxiously awaiting the sequel, Why Very Gorgeous and Extremely Smart People Have More Dead Daughters.

I found your blog by way of niobe. I've just sat here and read it from the beginning. There are no words for the tragedy that has beset you and your family. I am so sorry sounds so trite, but truly, I am.

I will be a frequent reader.

Wow, um, wow. This must be an...interesting book. One of the commentors on Amazon says:
"Men still look for blonde women because being blonde told a man 10,000 years ago that a woman was young and thus fertile(most women with blonde hair in their youth have it turn brown as they age)"

Umm...and what percentage of the Earth's female population are blonde? she asked, looking at her dark skin and dark brown hair.

This book sounds like a bunch of Eurocentric nonsense, regardless of whether or not there might be a nugget of truth in it (which I highly doubt). Meh.

Huh, thanks Orodemniades, I didn't make it much past the title and smiling happy live baby on the cover. And really, what cool people have live ones anymore, hmm? Glad to know it's just a steaming pile of reheated eugenics.

I'm a blonde (dirty blonde but blonde nonetheless) and I am obviously no fertile myrtle.

That book title just pisses me off. Plain and simple. I don't even really know what its about and yes, I will judge a book by its cover :)
