A personal note from your mutated host

I am totally screwed.

I mean, the article from the “beeb” (link below) about redheads being much more at risk of skin cancer is out of the “duh” file, but still, it reminded me that I am, indeed, a mutant with highly reactive melanosomes in my skin, which have a propensity to create nasty things. The science is kind of interesting though, as is the British description of us mutants as having “ginger” hair.

Ah well, at least I’m not sitting in the Superdome listening to the sound of the roof being ripped off and waiting for a flood of toxic junk to fill my city. I’m definitely not rooting for the hurricane.
