    Dear Ruth,
    I attended your excellent presentation today (May 13th) at Plymouth Church. I’m the older guy who left at 9:28 – in order to be on time for the morning rehearsal of Plymouth’s adult choir.
    This is the question I wanted to ask: To what extent do you think your current situation was influenced by the fact that you were originally a left-handed female.
    Background to the question: (1) I am fairly certain it is the case that left-handed people are better with their right hands than vice versa. (2) My research in math education resulted in the following: Whereas girls outscore boys in arithmetic computation tests, boy outscore girls in novel math problem solving tests (beginning in the second grade – the earliest grade in which tests are at all reliable), and whereas left-handed students outscore right-handed students on those novel tests, again from second grade on, left-handed girls outscore right-handed boys on those tests.
    (I earned my Ph.D. at Harvard in 1973 – in educational research.)
