Following up on left-hand turn elimination at UPS, a friend overseas wrote to tell me that a number of Japanese parcel delivery companies have already had a similar program in place, although for them it's obviously no right-hand turns. Who da thunk it?

Meanwhile, because all things southpaw tend to follow me like a plague, I just learned that a quote from my book is included in the "Left-Hander's Desktop Calendar for 2007." It isn't a National Book Award, but I'll take it. And just today I bumped into an article about a Finnish retailer called The Left Foot Co. (Saw it in Forbes, which of course made it sound like spending $300 on shoes was no big deal.)
