Knowledge or Understanding?

Lately I have been thinking a lot about understanding.  Mostly because I see understanding as something people confuse with knowledge.  To clear it up a bit, you can have scads of knowledge and yet not fully understand, but you can come to understanding with a limited amount of knowledge.

The NEBA Luncheon this week had as it’s speaker, Rick Scott, governor of our fine state.  Got to shake his hand and I must say he comes across as a sincere, genuine sort of governor.  Governor Scott is off next week for South America, Brazil, I think.  The object being increase of trade between Florida and S.A.  I sent an email to his office encouraging
him to seek out Dan Strongin, the Deming Collaboration consultant there.  Dan will let us know if the governor calls.
