Lefties are making a comeback!

As a proud left-hander myself, I was most interested to read this article in the Sunday Times today - the number of left-handed people has risen steadily over the last hundred years, as we see a huge reduction in the number of natural lefties being forced at school and at home (sometimes with their hand tied behind their backs) to write with their unnatural, right, hand. I really can't fathom the amount of brain-wiring confusion caused by forcing someone to write with their wrong hand. I just see it as such a wasted effort, when that effort could be put to much better use helping the person to expand on the natural gifts of left-handers (so called "right-brained" people), such as art.

Very interesting article, be sure to check it out.

I'm a lefty too, and so is my wife, Tuffy P. Isn't everyone?

My own dear-heart is sadly afflicted with right-handedness - oh well, no one's perfect. :)

He does bowl with his left there's hope for him yet. :D
