Not in My Toaster, Ingvar


(A toaster with a Blackberry or other thin electronic device in one slot, a piece of dark toast in the other)

Only when sleeping do we make no mistakes.

Mistakes are the privilege of the active person, who can start over and put things right. -- Ingvar Kamprad, founder of IKEA

Dear Dan & Pam,

A wisdom postcard from your favorite Swedish mega-retailer. The sort of mistake indicated here points to dementia, I think.

Good of you to send a real letter in '07. Keep 'em coming.
