Ball point pen on the morning newsprint

The issues and problems are omnipresent for our new president, but I for one am comforted by Obama's command of the facts and eagerness to engage. It's a stark contrast from our previous chief executive.

A side note: Five of the last seven US Presidents have been left handed: Ford, Bush the elder, Reagan, Clinton and Obama, what's more, no matter who won the previous election, we were destined to put another lefty in the White House since both Obama and McCain are left handed. Other lefty notables: Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci, Angelina Jolie and my daughter Alyssa. Check out this web site of famous left handers.

    I agree with you Larry. I have been feeling sorry for him. He gets criticized no matter what he tries but the man can really handle himself and I'm sure that in time his persistence will win out.

    I agree with Alice. The left-handed business is fascinating, isn't it! Excellent portraits here.
