    Many many years ago I interviewed for a job in a non profit in Washington, D.C. My prospective boss asked me to go out to lunch and my choices were the expensive restaurant next door or a cafeteria at NEA. I chose the former.

    Why did I get the job? I was red haired, boss’s daughters had red hair, and this was a mitigating factor. When I walked into the office on the first day of work, his secretary AND administrative assistant were red haired.

    Moral to story: Order somewhere in the middle. Avoid all traps.
