I have had a life-long love of Left-handed people. I don't know. There is just something different about them. The ones I know in person have the greatest sense of humour. I usually notice Lefties instantly in real life. Maybe they have a determination about them that I like as they adapt to to the Rightie world. (Teaching calligraphy, I see my fair share. There were 3 in one class in Winnipeg last fall!)
It's a little harder when you're watching the tube, though. I think it was years before I realized Oprah was a Leftie. In drama series, there are tons of Lefties. I swear there is at least one per show.
The Lefties I know in real life are pretty ambidextrous. But Robert Goren isn't. I don't know whether it's because you see him writing a lot (and of course he carries his gun on the other hip) or just what, but Vincent D'Onofrio screams Leftie in almost every scene.
I love this scene in Cuba Libre. Ever noticed the switch from his left hand to right so he can correctly demonstrate what probably happened during the crime?

You can see a whole bunch of Vincent Leftie photos on my friend Tjara's blog. She is a Leftie and notices these things (although my close Leftie friend never does!)
