The Law of the Letter
The best way to inspire fresh thought is to seal the letter.
NB. For young people, a letter is something that people used to send a message before the Internet was invented. One wrote on a piece of paper, sealed the paper in an envelope, and placed the envelope in a metal box on the street corner. The service was paid for with little pieces of paper, called stamps, which were stuck on the envelope. Remnants of this anachronism in the US are now target of the Tea Party.
NB. Perhaps, the law should now read: The best way to inspire fresh thought is to push send.
