Donald Rumsfeld

"There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know."

I thought that this quote was appropriate given the limbo status of our latest election and the whole provisional ballot process. I would add that in Lake Worth we have another category which is the "unknown knowns." These would be facts that people consciously and routinely dismiss, agreeing as a group on what are the "truths" and use them in their place. When, in fact, it is all done it is an attempt to misrepresent reality.
