Streams, Dreams Sometimes, Too Many Choices May Not Be A Good Thing “What’s true in our minds is true, whether some people know it or not.” – Chris Neilsen, “What Dreams May Come,” Polygram Filmed Entertainment, 1998 It’s difficult to believe but corrective fluids - Wite-Out and Liquid Paper – are still being widely sold and used, according to Tia Frapolli, head of NPD Group’s office supply practice.
