Thanks again to our guest (left handed) correspondent Glenn O'Dea for this interesting and of course very true article about left handers...
A TOAST TO LEFTHANDEDNESS
Have I mentioned before that left-handers are taking over the world? I think I have. But just in case any right-handers out there are in any doubt and are considering not bowing down before us, let me state the facts again.
Despite the obstacles thrown at us (can openers, scissors, etc), many left-handers have achieved great power. Aristotle, Julius Caesar, Napoleon Bonaparte, Leonardo Da Vinci, Toulouse Lautrec, Charlie Chaplin, Marilyn Monroe, Lewis Carroll, Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, Winston Churchill, David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Jack the Ripper, Chewbacca the Wookie, Bart Simpson... well, you get the idea.
And in table tennis it’s happening as well. Particularly in doubles. Of the last 16 pairs in the Men’s Doubles at the recent Japan Open, 15 pairings were a combination of a left-hander and a right-hander. And the 16th pairing? 2 left-handers. I’m available as a doubles partner if anyone is interested.
