Urban Legend?


Several readers have written in to say that despite numerous websites claiming Arabic heritage for Christa MacAuliffe (nee Corrigan), she appears to be Irish. Anybody have any idea what her mother’s maiden name was? Arabic, perhaps? Let me know; I don’t want to be propagating an urban legend (or if so, then I want it to be a really outlandish and fun one).
