I am reminded of my first ever query on comp.text.tex where Donald A, 
said, ``That looks like a multi-item labeled list.''

Are you really doing:

|                                                | page width
     (1) short  (3)  bloody long premise
         -----     ------------------------
     (2) short  (4) bloody long conclusion

So that one needs to flow between the columns?

If so is it consistent that you'll need the wider area on the 
right-hand side of the page or could it switch?
