The gene lives on

There is a pernicious rumor that red hair is genetically doomed and dying out. I like to celebrate proof that this is not the case. Here is a Colombian girl we met on the bus. She was coming home from school. She has red hair. Really red hair. This is remarkable because no one else around her had red hair. Indeed we’ve seen no one else in this country with red hair. The gene lives on!
