The Known Unknowns Revisited
"The message is that there are no "knowns." There are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say there are things that we now know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know."
I think we have just managed to match the above statement with one of our own. Talking about the Casino Control Bill, one good minister took pains to explain the size of the department that will control anti-vice activities. He said…
"We don't want an oversized department and end up not having much to do. We hope we don't have much to do, but at the same time when we need to do a job, we make sure we have enough people to do the job or, at least, to understand how to do the job."
I guess just saying that “the department size will be sufficient enough” would have been too confusing for Singaporeans :)
