Who could forget the immutable, yet riddling words of the former two-time Pentagon chief (and the youngest ever), Illinois Congressman, White House staffer, NATO rep, United States Navy captain and “Counsellor to the President”, “The Honorable” Donald Henry Rumsfeld back in 2002 during what came to be one of the more famous DoD briefings in the department’s history?
Reports that say that something hasn’t happened are always interesting to me, 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. And if one looks throughout the history of our country and other free countries, it is the latter category that tend to be the difficult ones.
Here’s one we know we know: Donny Rumsfeld has released an app — that’s right, an app — called “Churchill Solitaire”. And word on the street is it’s actually a ton of fun (if you’re into lonely card games, that is).
This from Gizmodo:
If the name didn’t tip you off, it’s a Winston Churchill-themed Solitaire game. Rumsfeld created it working with his former aid, Keith Urbahn, who now works at a media agency called Javelin.
Apparently the British Bulldog enjoyed unwinding after a long day of a more complicated version of Solitaire involving two decks and special row of cards called “The Devil’s Six.”
The app has different levels based on Churchill’s professional progress, and if you beat it, you get to be Prime Minister.
