Coming out of the closet. -- Alright, I admit it: I am left-handed. In fact, I am left-sided. My left leg is stronger than my right leg; my left ear hears better than my right ear; and my left eye sees better than my right eye. I still remember my parents' shock when they found out. And they put me through a harsh drill of daily exercises to make me write with my right hand. Recent neurological studies suggest that such drill causes long-term brain damage. But then again, there is mounting evidence that left-handers are more creative and process information faster.
