I want you to write a function that accepts two strings and returns True if the two strings are anagrams of each other.

Your function should work like this:

>>> is_anagram("tea", "eat")
True
>>> is_anagram("tea", "treat")
False
>>> is_anagram("sinks", "skin")
False
>>> is_anagram("Listen", "silent")
True

Make sure your function works with mixed case.
