I recently made what I thought was an innocent joke about the fact that the game show Jeopardy! doesn't air in Denmark. Some of the Danes in that thread took it kind of hard, so by way of apologizing, I bought this microbadge: mb

But sadly, poor Sweden was brought into this unwillingly. I feel like Sweden deserves a special apology, as she was an innocent bystander caught in the cross-fire. I wished I could go there to apologize in person... But then I realized I didn't need to. I live in Rockford, IL! This whole city was built by Swedes, and they have left their mark on the city in a number of ways.

So I went in search of forgiveness from the Swedish heritage of my own home town...

My first stop was to the local Swedish historical society. My awkward apology was not well received.

Here I am paying my respects to the railway station where Swedish immigrants arrived in Rockford in droves. I still felt like my cries were falling on deaf ears.
