You know who was left-handed? U.S. Presidents Harry Truman, Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama. You know who else? Jimi Hendrix and Oprah Winfrey? Not to mention Julia Roberts and Lady Gaga. And then of course, there were the actual “southpaws” — baseball legends such as Babe Ruth and Sandy Koufax. Legend has it that Alexander the Great was a lefty, but that one’s up for debate.
Long story short: There have been a lot of super-cool lefties. So it’s super-cool that there’s a special day set aside just for them. That would be International Lefthanders Day on August 13!
