Posted Nov. 6, 2002

Linus from the "Peanuts" cartoon used to say, "There are three things I don't discuss with people: religion, politics and the Great Pumpkin."

Left-Handers Unite!
Attention left-handed students! Aren't you tired of having to write at desks set up for right-handers, as your arm cramps up and you bump elbows with the rightie seated next to you? Wouldn't it be nice to have left-handed desks strategically located in each classroom? It can be frustrating being left-handed in a world set up for right-handed people. And yet many right-handers aren't even aware of some of the issues and problems faced by left-handed folks. If you're interested in changing that situation, attend this meeting. This is a problem we can fix!
