It's important for people to learn about southpaws and give due respect. Lefties have many intrinsic advantages. They usually visualize things in a more abstract manner than righties. More artists and architects are natural lefties — Michelangelo, Pablo Picasso and M.C. Escher. Lefties are more perceptive to changes in musical tones, perhaps because they hear equally well with both ears, unlike righties. Thus great lefty songwriters such as Bob Dylan and Cole Porter.
Left-handed quarterbacks, like Steve Young, have had an advantage. And watch left-handed basketball players shoot around their right-handed opponents in the NCAA tourney this week.
Albert Einstein, Oprah Winfrey, Mark Twain, Larry Bird, Robert DeNiro and John McEnroe were and are lefties. Nevertheless, some say discrimination still remains in America, that it's a right-handed world. You have to be 30 minutes early to class to get the only left-handed desk, a left-handed student told me.
