The US once divided into North and South. The North had factories and the South had okra. Although the breach was repaired, this dynamic pretty much remains true today.
Cincinnati has it's east and west sides. If you're an east sider, you take your first million and build a house and buy a BMW. If you're a west sider, you hide it in your mattress. Or so I've been told.
The prayer room has it's left side and it's right side. There's also a middle section - prayer moderates, if you will, although that group is in constant flux and most people eventually declare a section on one side or the other.
I've been a left sider for years, but this morning finds me on the right side. It's a pretty interesting experience. There is a little place tucked away behind a corner that is 10db quieter and there is almost no chance of being run over during a rapid fire prayer stampede. I was actually greeted by a right sider who welcomed me. If they offer me a signing bonus (and a guarantee on this seat), I'd consider switching for real.
