The Blue People of Troublesome Creek

I found the link to this article (via Pravda's 5 page plus photo http://english.pravda.ru/science/mysteri... ) on Crystalinks two days ago. Pravda had taken it verbatim from a Rootsweb article, http://www.rootsweb.com/~kyperry3/Blue_F...
I looked up the illness cited, Methemoglobinemia and found this link
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methemoglob... which cites it as a rare genetic disorder.

Then there was a discussion of blue people here at this link.
