Lefties


From Doug Mills of the New York Times comes this picture, clearly showing that President Obama is a lefty. This had escaped my attention until I saw him signing on inauguration day. Thank goodness, as we all know that left-handedness is a key determinant of intelligence, leadership, humor, insight and good looks. Well, we lefties know this at least...
[OK, this post may disprove the humor part but the rest is still valid!]

Well, I don't know about that. You know what they say about "sinister" .....

Oh, dear! Lefties exhibit good looks, intelligence, humor, and the rest of the stuff that leads to perfection?

What does that make us "righties"?

And more to the point in my case, what does that make us "started-as-leftie-and-am-now-both"?

Seriously, it's cool he's a leftie and so OBVIOUS about it. After he signed, he said something like "Yes, I'm a leftie. Get used to it."

Don't dispair righties! Everyone has a comparative advantage in something: perhaps you all are better at, I dunno, bingo. I'll have to think about it. But we lefties will take care of you, don't worry.
