What Don't You Know and How Will You Learn It?

I don't know Spanish and I will learn it by taking Spanish classes.

I don't know what tomorrow will bring and I can only learn it by being present tomorrow.

I also don't know why anyone wants to be president and I don't imagine I'll ever learn why they do.

I do know that there's no direct question that any politician will ever answer directly because then they're forced to take a position with which some people will disagree. I can live with that (as though I had a choice)—as long as they don't lie to me.

I also know that the last question in tonight's debate, while possessing a simple elegance and pleasing symmetry, is kinda dumb.

I don't know what will happen after Jan. 21, but i will learn it by surrounding myself with the smartest people I can get a hold of whether they are fun to have a beer with or not. - oh, if only he had said that.
