It's a lot harder for right handed people to write R to L than L to R. So why do they write R to L? Are there more left-handed people in Arabic countries? Or was it a left-handed guy that invented writing down there? Also, who were the first to start writing, and was it R to L or L to R? http://www.audienceoftwo.com/pics/upload/obamalefty [Broken] Here are some more famous left handed people.
