I'd appreciate any ideas on how to compare the skewness of two samples. In 
my case, one sample is likely to be roughly normal and the other one 
skewed. I could run two D'Agostino tests, but then I'll have to correct for 
the family-wise error. What if both samples are skewed? If there are no 
general tests (or they can't exist), I'd like to know.
