Rumsfeld R.I.P.

"The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence."

"Because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns -- the ones we don't know we don't know."
-D. Rumsfeld

There are things that you know that I don't know, and there are things that I don't know that you don't know, and there are things that everyone knows except him.

I'm not sure which surprised me most: Bush actually pulling this quote up at the news conference announcing Rumsfeld's departure, or the fact that he did it without his trademark malaprops. Maybe he's scared-straight, grammatically if not otherwise? ;-)
