Lefties - Aug. 13, 2010: The Writer's Almanac

Garrison Keillor is really on a roll:

...Today is also National Left Hander's Day - a day for the ten to fifteen percent of the world's population who are left handed. Left Handers, International started this day, agitating for left handed scissors, left-handed school desks, left handed computer mice. Their mantra is "Lefties have rights", and "Because right handed people operate in the left side of the brain, left handed people in the right side, therefore, only left-handed people are in their right mind".

    from APM: Garrison Keillor’s The Writer’s Almanac

Note to self: I must make sure my left handed brother sees this!
