A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

The Unknown Unnoun 

The Unnoun

As we know,
There are known nouns.
There are nouns we know we know.
We also know there are known unnouns (like suicider and decider).
That is to say, we know there are some things, we do not know (like how to tell the truth).
But there are also unknown unnouns (perhaps war criminaler or torture condoner).
The ones we don't know we don't know (which are likely quite numerous).
