Dateline: Centrist Thoughts For The Left Side Of Your Brain
Sidney is a left-brained analyst. Studious and outwardly directed, she keeps up with the latest developments in several human disciplines. Her favorite is science but she most often comments on politics because it has a wider audience.
Riley, Sidney's littermate, is also studious but his favorite subject is himself. He's most often found gazing into a mirror or looking at photos of himself in the family album. But, he does have a unique, and even perceptive, perspective on all things human.
While Sidney and Riley sometimes, but not always, share similar views, their blogs are written individually. Sidney, who relishes the left brain, that analytical chat room of the mind, signs off on her blogs with "See you on the left-side". Riley, who prefers external attractions, signs off on his with, "See you in the mirror".
Together, Sidney and Riley offer a view of humanity unique among bloggers. They are also featured in the comic strip, Letters From Us.
