The article seems slight, alright. Researchers who waste their time with things like this do none of us any favors. They probably need to take a hit to the right side of the brain. Maybe it would start working then. As far as you go, k, I must say that it sucks to find that we use the same hand to write with. I hate being in any classification that you are in. In fact, I am re-stringing my guitar right now. Time to convert to righty. Maybe my allergies, AIDS, depression, drug problem, schizophrenia, insomnia, and spatial challenges will all go away and I will drive better. Who knows?
