Howard Dean: Police Recruits
"All morning an instructor on my staff had been explaining leadership to a class of police recruits," Howard Dean once recalled. "Calling a man to the front of the class he handed him a piece of paper on which was written, 'You are in charge. Get everyone out of here without causing panic.' The recruit was at a loss for words and returned to his seat. The second man tried, 'The chief drill instructor wants us outside. Go!' No one moved. A third man glanced at the paper, smiled and said, 'All right, men. Break for lunch.' The room emptied in seconds."
