Well, yeah.  Everyone thinks that Ireland is full of red-haired people, too,
which is annoying because most of my Irish line ancestors weren't red-haired
(and some of the Lithuanian and German line ones, were).  People have told
me I have "Eastern European" looking hair, which is also amusing because
they won't tell me what that means.  I think I mentioned elsewhere the
degree to which I think silly and essentially baseless stereotypes bite.
