Higher paychecks a left-handed compliment?
A new study offers good news for left-handed men. As for the rest of the population, better luck next time. Left-handed men, often seen as having an advantage over their right-handed counterparts in some sports, also enjoy much better paydays, according to the study. Left-handed men with at least some college education earned 15 percent more than similarly educated right-handers, while those who finished college earned about 26 percent more. That sounds just about right to me. Here’s the story: Buffalo Sabres left-handed shooter J.P. Dumont (R) tries to use Jason Pominville’s right-handed stick in this photo from May 25, 2006.
